This reviewer enjoyed reading all the 2,500 pages of Mineral Processing Plant Design, Practice, and Control. The two volumes consist of 161 papers. The proceedings start with sampling and continue through all the procedures of minerals processing including case studies. Every paper is of the highest quality and will be of great interest and value to students, professors, metallurgists, plant engineers, management, design and construction firms, consultants, and even those who finance the building of mineral processsing plants. Of particular interest to this reviewer were the sections on Process Control and Instrumentation, Startup, Commissioning and Training, and, most importantly, Success Strategies for Building New Mining Projects. The latter should be studied and followed by all management people and those in the engineering and construction fields. By doing so, there will be no more mineral processing plants that fail, as several have done in recent years. This reviewer recommends that every person in the minerals processing field purchase these two volumes. Robert S. Shoemaker”

Mining Economics and Strategy (Paperback)

by Ian Runge (Author)

“Economic skill is an essential partner to technical skill in every step of the mining process. An economic “mindset” begins before the first drill hole. This new book will help you effectively direct mining operations through the use of innovative economic strategies. The text covers what is meant by a cost-effective mining scheme, the economics of information, and the procedures for rational evaluation of uncertain projects. It defines “ore” from an economic perspective and covers the influence of scheduling on ore reserves. Discounted cash flow techniques, the most widely used evaluation technique for investment decision making, is covered in detail. The assumption of the use of spreadsheets is unique to this book. The application of DCF techniques in an operating mine environment is given expanded coverage and examples are drawn from real-life studies. The differences between economic decision-making–a forward-looking task–and the reporting of results via accounting methods–a backward-looking activity are reviewed. Capital and decision-making procedures associated with capital investments in a risk environment are given extensive coverage. Case studies for capital investment in an operating mine are included. Comprehensive examples investigate “value” from a risk-reduction perspective and from an “expected return on investment” perspective. This book offers solutions to the problem that many mining projects fail to achieve expectations because of their inability to adapt to change. A new technique is explained that allows calculation of capital that is “at risk” from capital that is not at risk. This promises significant advances in the way that investments are made and capital is valued in the industry. The book concludes with a brief review of the historical setting and knowledge difficulties in any mining-related investment, and how these issues might also influence the success of investments in the future.”

Management of Mineral Resources: Creating Value in the Mining Business (Paperback)

by Juan P. Camus  

“Mining, as one of the world’s earliest industrial activities, continues to yield minerals and resources both valuable and fundamental to civilization. Yet the industry that produces such riches is not as lucrative as it may seem. It is one endeavor to discover a mineral deposit, and quite another to mine it profitably. The industry’s strategy for coping with low profitability has focused primarily on controlling production costs. Despite mechanization, automation, and other technical improvements, the aggregate profitability of mining still falls far short of that realized by most other industries. What appears to be lacking, contends author Juan Camus, is not additional technical knowledge, but rather sound management practices that utilitize the existing knowledge base more productively. Management of Mineral Resources aims to raise the level of mining profitability through better management–the process of generating plans and supervising their implementation. This book is concerned with the analysis of some of the internal, controllable factors that influence mining production effectiveness. It combines the best thinking in mining and management so that practitioners can devise a concrete strategy for generating maximum shareholder value. Ideas in both of these areas have rapidly evolved in recent years, and this insightful text presents an authoritative review of the current state of the art. A mass of published material exists, yet it is widely scattered–much of it in technical papers–and therefore not readily accessible. The thought-provoking material in this book has been selected, summarized, and presented by the author in a form that preserves the perspective of its relative importance.”

Evaluating Mineral Projects: Applications and Misconceptions (Paperback)

by Thomas F. Torries

“Whether you’re an experienced evaluator of mineral projects, a student, or a decision maker who is not a practitioner but must use evaluation results, this new book is an essential reference for your bookshelf. Designed to complement traditional engineering texts, this book emphasizes the concepts of mineral project evaluation rather than computational details. It describes various economic evaluation techniques typically employed (including conventional cost analysis, discounted cash flow, and option analysis), their uses, and their relationships with geological, technological, and financial evaluations. Also discussed are the strengths and weaknesses of commonly practiced evaluation methods. This book explains the practical difficulties in conducting an analysis and correctly interpreting the results, as well as the use of alternative techniques. Because many existing texts do not adequately discuss the meanings and application of merit measures, such as net present value (NPV) or internal rate of return (IRR), this book represents an exciting departure from standard reference tools. Contents include: why NPV and IRR are both valid and useful merit measures the shortcomings of conventional NPV and IRR analysis the dangers of scenario analysis why conventional incremental analysis is not needed to correctly calculate IRR why the desire to achieve NPV-consistent IRR is misleading how competitive cost analysis is conducted and used why option pricing is an important addition to the evaluation process. When used correctly, evaluation methods are powerful tools to help us understand the economics of investment projects. Don’t miss out on this new source. Contains glossary and full index.”

by Kevin Corcoran (Author)

“Junior Mining Investor brings together the combined wisdom of 14 mining-industry veterans to reveal how they make money speculating, trading and investing in junior mining and exploration stocks. These issues trade like no other sector and the potential to double or even triple your investment in 2-3 days means you have to be in the right stock at the precise time. Each succinct chapter presents the author’s strategy and offers step-by-step guidance on implementing it for maximum profits. These analysts are newsletter writers, hedge fund managers, discovery geologists, and industry veterans who have one thing in common: a winning record and proven philosophy in the ever-changing gold and resource stock market. They understand the key fundamentals to investing in the resource sector and have created life-changing wealth for many of their clients. Gold, silver, platinum, uranium, nickel, copper and various other base metals have been in a bull market since 2001 and will most likely continue for many years as the economic growth in China, India, Brazil, and Russia demands ever-increasing amounts of the world’s raw materials. One of the best ways to invest in these commodities is through mining and exploration companies that explore for, discover, develop and mine these valuable resources. Junior mining and explorations stocks provide exposure to the metals market. And since they have a ‘small’ market capitalization, typically between $10 and $300 million, these companies offer great leverage and the chance to multiply your money rapidly, if done correctly. In Junior Mining Investor, you will learn how to buy and sell stocks listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and Canada’s Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX-Venture – where over 60% of the world’s exploration companies are listed. Many of these companies do not trade on the broad U.S. exchanges, so it is critical that you understand how to access these foreign markets. This book is for investors who wish to gain the necessary fundamentals to speculate in this exciting, dynamic, and profitable market. Small-cap junior mining and exploration stocks are a proven way to play the current bull market in precious metals, base metals and uranium. And with the right knowledge, many investors are making big gains.

Traitement du Minerai

Serge Bouchard (Auteur), Collège de la Région de l’Amiante

“L’ouvrage traite des principales facettes de la minéralurgie. L’auteur y décrit, entre autres, de façon exhaustive les procédures utilisées en usine et en laboratoire. En collaboration avec le Centre collégial de développement de matériel didactique.
Lorsque les engins d’exploitation apportent à l’atelier de concassage ou à l’usine de concentration le minerai de la mine, la richesse contenue dans les blocs n’est pas toujours apparente. En effet, à regarder ces blocs, on ne voit pas toujours très bien ce qu’on peut en tirer. C’est à ce moment qu’intervient la minéralurgie, qui comprend l’ensemble des étapes, des méthodes et des techniques permettant d’extraire des blocs de la mine le minéral utile qui y est contenu.
Le procédé de traitement du minerai est mis en route : le contrôle, l’optimisation, la nécessité de pallier les variations dans la matière première et les aléas du marché de consommation sont autant d’objectifs qui peuvent être atteints grâce à un programme de recherche et d’expérimentation dans les laboratoires indépendants et ceux de l’usine. Les méthodes sont continuellement testées, améliorées, et de nouveaux procédés sont même conçus
Traitement du minerai traite des principales facettes de la minéralurgie. Dans l’ouvrage, l’auteur explique pourquoi les stimuli appliqués sur les procédés se traduisent par des conséquences précises sur leurs performances, et décrit de façon exhaustive les procédures en usine et en laboratoire. Plus de 375 figures illustrent notamment un équipement, un appareil ou une machine, un circuit, un mécanisme de processus minéralurgique, la planification des travaux de même que l’influence d’une variable sur les performances d’un procédé. L’abondance d’exercices résolus et la présentation détaillée des procédures d’essais de flottation caractérisent l’ouvrage, enrichi d’annexes et d’un index.”

Prospection minière

Bruno Landry, Cégep de Sherbrooke

” Bien que la reconnaissance géologique du territoire soit aujourd’hui relativement détaillée et que les techniques de prospection se soient beaucoup raffinées, les prospecteurs indépendants n’en demeurent pas moins à l’origine de la majorité des découvertes de nouveaux indices minéralisés. Et c’est à ces prospecteurs que Prospection minière s’adresse.
Ce manuel s’inspire des nombreuses activités de soutien aux prospecteurs organisées par le Comité des mines du CRD-Estrie. Il vise à rendre les prospecteurs du Québec plus compétents et autonomes. Il se divise en deux parties. La première traite des notions de géologie essentielles en prospection. La deuxième plonge directement au cœur du sujet, soit la prospection sur le terrain. On y présente les différentes techniques de prospection, et on fait le point sur la Loi sur les mines et sur la promotion d’une propriété minière.
Prospection minière devrait trouver une vaste audience auprès des associations de prospecteurs, dans les maisons d’enseignement (collèges et universités), de même que dans les groupes et milieux intéressés à la connaissance et à la mise en valeur des ressources minérales. Parce que le secteur minier est l’un des principaux rouages de l’économie du Québec, il faut accentuer l’effort de prospection et faire en sorte que les prospecteurs soient correctement informés.

Notions de géologie, 3e édition revue et augmentée

Bruno Landry, Cégep de Sherbrooke

“Notions de géologie est un ouvrage qui, par ses qualités pédagogiques indiscutables, a su s’imposer comme le manuel indispensable aux étudiants en géologie et en sciences de la Terre. On y trouve plus de 300 illustrations et cartes, 200 photographies et 35 encadrés informatifs.
À l’aide d’exemples principalement empruntés au territoire géologiquement riche du Québec, les auteurs présentent les notions de base de la géologie en s’appuyant sur les derniers modèles géodynamiques et géochimiques.
Cet ouvrage se présente en huit parties : L’Univers et la planète Terre; Les matériaux de l’écorce terrestre; Les déformations des matériaux de l’écorce terrestre; Le domaine continental; Le domaine océanique; La Terre : planète active; La Terre : ses ressources; Le Québec.
Deux chapitres sont consacrés au domaine océanique, domaine essentiel pour qui veut bien comprendre les grands cycles des principaux éléments chimiques naturels ainsi que le fondement de la tectonique des plaques. La théorie des plaques lithosphériques sert d’ailleurs de fil conducteur à tout le volume. De même, les séismes, le volcanisme et les chaînes de montagnes sont ici traités pour la première fois. ”
