AGR recently hosted the third annual ‘Gold Processing for Non-Metallurgists’ workshop as part of its ongoing sponsorship of the P420 project, coordinated by AMIRA International.
Through Curtin University’s Western Australian School of Mines, the project is a collaborative, industry funded initiative focussed on developing gold processing technology.
The workshop is designed to give a broad overview of gold processing technology to non-technical employees within the gold industry. The course is a condensed, one and a half day version of the traditional two day course, aimed at geologists, mining engineers, laboratory staff, accountants and all other non-metallurgists in the gold industry. Attendees also had the opportunity to tour AGR’s sodium cyanide manufacturing plant at Kwinana.
AGR’s customers benefit greatly from complimentary attendance having stated they have learned a number of valuable things about gold processing which they will take back and share with their businesses.
The workshop was well supported, with 23 attendees from Western Australian gold mining companies, international gold producers, CSBP and AGR staff and AMIRA sponsors.
