for instance, in this approach, one ton of iron is consid- ered equal to one ton of gold, even though iron is more abundant than gold and the energy required to extract the metal from the ore
the average energy per tonne of ore, per ounce of gold, per tonne of copper, and per tonne of copper equivalent can all be used to calculate the remaining energy requirement. using the average of all three methods, the annual comminution energy consumption for the mining of copper and gold is approximately 44 teatt hours.
gyro gold produces a highly efficient, low maintenance gold separating solution. we maximize gold ore processing by shortening the gap between expected yield and marketable gold, thus achieving profitability earlier in the season. gyro gold provides operational analysis and customer service that is second to none.
the total gold and copper production of the mines included in the study equated to 15% and 24% respectively of global production and all of australian production. the comminution energy per unit metal product has been presented in a graphical form similar to a cost curve.

the recovery ratio in mining refers to the percentage of valuable ore within the total mined material. while coal mining has a recovery ratio of 82%, the recovery ratio for metals averages only about 4.5% exhibit 5 .

benchmarking energy efficiency a case study at macraes gold mine . by: k barns, g lane, k osten, n scagliotta . abstract oceana gold new zealand limited operates the macraes gold mine near dunedin on the south island of new zealand. the ore body is mineralogically complex and comparatively low grade
for example in 1998 the amount of gold and silver crude ore produce was 254 million tons with 1,065 million tons of waste produced. from 1994 to 1998 the average crude ore ratio was 21 percent. this means for every 100 tons of material mined there is 21 percent ore and 79 percent waste.
gold extraction and recovery processes. heap leaching can be considered as a percolation process on ore piles. the process is characterized for its economic cost against the agitated leaching process when the ore deposit has a low gold content. typically the process can process ores whose gold content is 0.8-1.1 g/t.
concentration activities. the office of energy efficiency of natural resources canada nrcan has provided assistance for this study, which is a part of nrcans ongoing efforts to promote more efficient energy use in canada. 1.2 focus the focus of this analysis is the mining and concentration operations of open-pit mines of mac members.
blasting is the most cost-efficient means for ore size reduction. chemical energy is cheap as opposed to electrical energy. if you can design a blast pattern that maximizes the use of cheap chemical energy in a safe manner, you will have a significant impact on the electrical energy required to complete the size reduction process.
sensor-based ore sorting is being increasingly used to reduce the amount of low-grade and waste material processed in mineral concentrators. this type of preconcentration provides bottom-line benefits to users by reducing the amount of energy, water and consumables, as well as reducing capital cost.
aluminium is an energy bank; most of the original input can be recovered every time the product is recycled. such improvements, along with the addition of new, best available technology, refining capacity has driven an almost 10% improvement in global refining energy efficiency in just 5 years. today, the average specific energy consumption is around 14.5 gj per tonne of alumina, including electrical energy of around 150 kwh/t al 2 o 3 .
gold ore has found a way to harness this powerful energy and use it for something good. chemical reactions are governed by the interaction of energy and matter. imploding cavitating bubbles generate temperatures of up to 5,500 c and pressures of around 1,000 atmospheres, creating a highly reactive environment for mass transfer and chemical
4 renewable energy in the australian mining sector the australian mining sector consumes roughly 500 petajoules per year, 10% of australias total energy use, and consumption has risen at 6.0% per annum over the last decade1, driven primarily by increased mining volumes. the mining sector derives most of its energy from
