Metallurgical & Process Design

Finding the most cost-effective process design for all types of products

Stantec’s metallurgists and process engineers can give you the information and insights you need for your mining project’s potential, even before you start the study phase. We’ll apply our recognised expertise in metallurgical testing and processing to understand the metallurgy and ore characteristics of your resource and determine the best extraction and processing methods to gain maximum output, at the least cost.

Our team will simplify this for you by developing, budgeting, and scheduling the metallurgical test plans and sampling requirements. We can manage and coordinate the test program with labs, interpret the results, and deliver a compliant metallurgical summary report to you on time. This key step is essential to developing a process flow sheet that is practical, cost effective and delivers maximum yield for your deposit.

At Stantec we have worked on minerals and metals such as iron ore, manganese, mineral sands, copper, diamonds, coal, gold and other precious and base metals, battery metals, rare earths, and scandium. Whatever you are looking to mine, and wherever it is found, we have the knowledge to get your project into production.

Metallurgical testwork and lean process design

Our team of experts will figure out your ore’s performance through metallurgical testwork performed to appropriate standards and test plans. We will help you decide the product grade, recovery, and scale of the process equipment you need.

Engineering design using the latest software

We utilise a variety of the latest 3D modelling software for each project phase from as early as conceptual design. This integrated approach to engineering helps us to coordinate disciplines and maintain the accuracy and efficiency you need.
