IMA Engineering presented its bulk ore sorting smart solution, at Zimec 2022, the longest-running mining and energy event in Zambia. The event in Kitwe is taking place between 1-3 November and brings together important mining players and technology providers.
There is no doubt that 2021 was an interesting year for everybody. During this month we take some time to count our achievements and learn how we can further improve and serve the world. We also produced and launched our solutions video this year, to better illustrate how IMA Smart Mining Solutions work together to improve mining efficiency and reduce mining costs.

Mr. Ilpo Auranen, Chairman of IMA Engineering has been recently interviewed by Dan Gleeson from the International Mining Magazine on the topic of Ore Sorting and Pre-Concentration Technology. You can read the whole article featuring Mr. Auranen’s interview in the 2021 March issue of the International Mining Magazine. Read the complete article and interview online or download a copy below.
IMA Engineering carried out grade control study in a low grade nickel mine, utilizing the new Percussive Drill Sampler – Analyzer (PDSA) trailer mounted version. The goal of the study was to compare the current mine grade control method with the new continuous On-Line sampling and analysis method, and calculate it’s effect to the mine economy.
This week, we continue our series of posts on the topic of Blast Hole Sampling and Analysis in Ore Grade Control in Mining and today we are talking about IMA Engineering’s Methods, Equipment and Results for Blast Hole Sampling. This article and the attached white paper are the continuation of our previous article that you can read here.
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.
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.
Ore sorting is one of the focus areas mining companies are now looking at in improving mining proficiency and becoming ever more sustainable in mining. For almost a decade IMA Engineering has been developing sensor applications to better separate ore from the waste from early exploration to modern bulk ore sorting (or particle sorting).
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.
We are extremely proud that Ilpo Auranen, Chairman of IMA Engineering has been interviewed by International Mining Magazine. Read more and download the whole interview.
