Reducing carbon footprint in mining by bulk ore sorting

Sustainability and environmental consideration stand at the core of IMA’s philosophy. Everything we do is to help mines become more efficient and environmentally sustainable. In Bulk Ore Sorting the IMA BOSS is removing waste rock from mineral concentrator feed material and replacing it from ore recovered by sorting from waste rock.

Remote installations and reduction in CO2 emissions

With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we have reduced and, in many cases, halted completely our travel plans to visit our customers. We worked hard to transform and adapt to the new global economical and environmental situations, and this led to remote deliveries and installation of our smart mining solutions. This month we delivered and installed the IMACON remotely in Peru. Our solutions are installed and used in a copper mine.

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.
