ENS4114 Minerals and Solids Processing
Credit Points: 15
ENS3112 Process Engineering Unit Operations

There is a wide range of processing technologies used in the minerals industry with varying characteristics that determine how and why they are used. This unit covers the underpinning fundamental physical, chemical and transport processes that are important in minerals processing. A key feature of minerals processing is the influence of raw materials and market needs on processes and products. Students will learn the importance of the integrated  "mine to metal"  approach to process design and optimisation, so as to gain an understanding of the challenges that dictate the sustainable supply of these materials.
