The Role

SMI-JKMRC and Newcrest Mining Pty Ltd recently launched a collaborative project that supports the work of research higher degree students. Work is due to commence in January 2017 (or April 2017 in the event of student enrolment delays). The PhD project working title is Differential separation of high Au and low Au pyrite species in gold ores.

The aims of the project are firstly to investigate which of the potential process routes identified in the literature has the greatest potential as a method to create differential separation of the low Au grade and high Au grade pyrites present in rougher concentrate from a Newcrest gold ore.

The second objective is to identify for the chosen process route what process conditions provide the maximum benefit in terms of Au recovery and Au:S ratio in the differential separation of low Au and high Au grade pyrite from the Newcrest gold ore.
