Increase Uranium Recovery by 3% ($25M)

Major Pollymetalic Mine in Australia

Improving process control in Tails Leach Tanks with 18 new virtual sensors and optimization recommendations

Flotation App Snippet 2

Customer Challenge

Real-time Control over Variables within Tanks

Metallurgists lack control over chemical conditions inside tanks (pH and Redux)

Gangue mineralogy can cause ‘gelling’ events

Laboratory assay results in every 4 hrs only


How We Helped

In-Tank Virtual Sensors and Optimization

Implementation of in-tank Virtual Sensors (VS) for density, slurry viscosity, and silica gel formation

Acid  and Sodium Chlorate Dosing Optimizer

Material tracking influence (feed properties) and silica gel formation alerts

The Outcome

Metal Recovery Increased by 3% ($25M)

18 new Real-time outputs from Virtual Sensors

Additional production of 161.5 tonnes of U/year, worth of USD 25M/yr

Potential increase of 3% in Uranium recovery within the circuit by optimizing setpoints
