I want to know how Metallurgical Process Plant audit of an Iron Ore crushing and beneficiation Plant will be carried out. What are the process variables we need to study during audit of the plant. How many no. of samples  I need to take at a sampling point. What is the amount of sample I need to take from a single sample point.

May anybody please tell me.

Hi, this is a very large topic. It covers (just to name a few): 

  • Plant capacity 
  • Work index of ore 
  • Product yield or recovery 
  • Product quality 
  • Chemical reagents 
  • Equipment efficiency 
  • Tailings characterization

Define the program objectives:

  • Designate project manager for each project.
  • The project manager should have a diverse background in mining, geology, environmental, and mineral processing fields.
  • Translate ill-defined program objectives into well-defined objectives (e.g., change “improve recovery" to "improve recovery by 2% while maintaining operating costs at the same level").
  • Maintain good communication with management and operating personnel.
