Process Plant Operators

(3 Day Training Course)

Process Plant Operators Course


In depth knowledge of operations for process plant operators.


The course provides an in depth explanation of the typical unit operations of mineral processing plants operators involved in base metals, iron ore, and gold processing. Mineral processing unit operations covered include crushing, grinding, leaching, stripping, flotation and gravity concentration etc. Process plants are large capital cost facilities and operating efficiency is critical to the success of resource projects. Understanding the unit operations associated with mineral processing provides the ability to improve the process in terms of productivity and efficiency.

Key Learning Outcomes:

The benefits of attending this course are numerous. Participants will learn about process plant operations of various mineral ores, production of concentrates and metals. This course aims to provide operators with an understanding of metal extraction and processing. The course will treat the subjects in sufficient detail to provide operators with a good understanding of the overall operations of a process plant.
