The Importance of Sampling and Analysis Accuracy in Grade Control

Blast hole sampling and analysis in Ore Grade Control in Mining is a topic that we feel, hasn’t been covered enough. During the month of March 2021, we aim to bring some clarity on this topic and to present some solutions to the current challenges faced by mining companies all over the world.

Integrated Mining Technologies for Sustainable Raw Material Supply

In 2017, the Iterams project consortium started the adventure towards more sustainable mining under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program. The project marked a new direction to the mining industry in relation to mine water and tailings. One of the main challenges of this century is to conserve and protect freshwater. The team at ITERAMS has published THE H2020 ITERAMS INTEGRATED MINING TECHNOLOGIES FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIAL SUPPLY book this month.

The importance of Ore Sorting to the overall mining production

The Journal of Cleaner Production was recently published, as part of the EU-funded ITERAMS project. Ima Engineering is taking part in the EU-funded project ITERAMS, “Integrated Mineral Technologies for More Sustainable Raw Material Supply” and our CEO Jukka Raatikainen contributed to this article which is a review of closed water loops with ore sorting and tailings valorisation for a more sustainable mining industry.
