The only enterprise-wide digital twin, metallurgical accounting and process optimisation solution for minerals processing
There are two distinct types of digital twin solutions used in mining digital transformation. The first type of mining digital twin is an asset digital twin. This is essentially a digital replica of a physical component of a mine, developed using CAD modelling. This type of digital solution helps stakeholders visualise their facility when remote. For example, it could be 3D modelling for mine planning that includes things like pit designs, haul routes and mine layouts.
The second and far more sophisticated digital twin is referred to as a process digital twin. This is essentially a digital replica of the actual processing of the ore body for a minerals processing plant – from raw material to finished product. This type of digital twin mining software uses dynamic simulation and machine learning, and considers a range of physical properties, such as temperature and pressure. The information from this digital twin can be combined with the specific chemical equations and processes that occur at each step of the refining process to deliver more comprehensive and accurate insights right across the digital mine.
Metallurgical Intelligence ® is a process digital twin.
Yes, Metallurgical Systems is also a mining consultant and metallurgical consultant. We provide consulting services through our consulting arm, Elemental Engineering. We advise on mining processes, process simulation and design, carbon accounting and more.
As the world strives to reach net zero emissions by 2050, demand for critical minerals and battery metals is increasing – led by the shift to renewables technology and green energy. Minerals processing plants need to maximise reco and operating efficiencies. Producing the highest-grade product, and getting the most out of finite resources, means having finely tuned processes and systems in place.
For over 20 years, the team at Elemental Engineering has been providing a range of consulting services to help minerals processing plants optimise their operations. Our experienced team of engineers and metallurgists are highly skilled in the processing of critical minerals and battery metals such as nickel, cobalt, copper, lithium, graphite, aluminium, manganese, rare earths and platinum group metals across all type of processes.
