Minerals | Special Issue : Geometallurgy

Geometallurgy has reached maturity, beyond its early simplistic “geology + metallurgy” conception. It is recognised as an approach that can both maximise value and predict the risks associated with resource development. Modern geometallurgy seeks to integrate geoscientific disciplines with minerals and mining engineering.
