Concentrate Cost Calculation
Concentrate Cost Calculation is another tool which calculates the cost of your plant’s metalurgical concentrate. Today, mineral processing is the key part of almost every mine operation. May be we can seperate mine operations into two parts. First one is production which comes from underground mine operations or open pit mine operations and second one is mineral processing which is the last part of production before marketing.
You need some datas to calculate the cost of concentrate.
1- The unit costs of ROMs which fed to plant. For example: from underground 200 tonne with a cost of 10 $/t ROM
2- Plant’s thecnical datas like recovery, unit cost of plant ($/tonne), feeding and concentrate grades etc. If you have feeding and conc. grades but you dont know the recovery then you can put the datas Recovery Calculation section and let the form evaluate it.
You may have different raw material so you can easily enter your tonnes and grades to each row. For example: In a Chromite Conc. Plant you may feed different types of ROM (run of mine) from undeground which has grade of %12-20 Cr2O3 and from open-pits which has grade of %4-5 Cr2O3.
All fields are optional like Recovery calculation section thus you don’t have to enter the data to the every box.
