IMO Metallurgy & Metallurgist Services
Independent Metallurgical Operations Pty Ltd (IMO) has provided operational and project support services to the mining industry since 1998. Our focus is to deliver tailored metallurgy solutions that are cost effective, efficient, safe and environmentally responsible.
The objectives of IMO are to assist exploration, mining and engineering companies with the development of process options for new projects or the management and optimisation of existing minerals treatment plants. This may be achieved through the management of studies in-house or the provision of contractors and permanent staff into client project and operations teams.
IMO is the largest metallurgical services group in Australia. We have a core team of operations staff including metallurgists, chemists and technicians; a team of consultants including metallurgists and process engineers plus a comprehensive data base of contractors available for both consulting and operations.
IMO’s vast experience has been gained through both small and large scale mining operations in a range of commodities including:
- Iron ore
- Base metals (Cu, Ni, Pb, Zn)
- Gold and other precious metals (Ag, Pt)
- Industrial minerals including rare earths, potash, graphite and graphine
Extensive exposure to all aspects of project development, design, plant commissioning and operations management, both domestically and internationally, allows us to understand and accommodate your specific project requirements.
IMO is a ‘Registered Research Agency’ under the Australian government research and development tax exemption program.
