:: Sorting Out Waste

 

Mining low grade ores is costing companies heavily on processing tonnes of waste rock. By rapidly sorting high value ore from waste on a conveyor using magnetic resonance technology, bulk ore sorting offers a step change in productivity for copper miners. Adam Courtenay reports.

CSIRO’s partnership with industry players Advisian and RFC Ambrian to produce the next generation bulk ore sorting technology is now being closely looked at by potential buyers.

NextOre, the company being formed by the three partners, has developed an advanced sensor system that takes advantage of magnetic resonance technology. It illuminates batches of ore with short pulses of radio waves, assessing ore grade and enabling high tonnage sorting at extremely high speeds.
