Our highly experienced team of expert consulting metallurgists and process engineers assist mining and exploration companies to develop practical, cost effective, environmentally responsible treatment options to process ore into saleable commodities.
IMO Consulting specialises in extractive metallurgy and process flowsheet development. IMO develops the optimum process flowsheet for each specific resource whilst taking into consideration ore mineralogy; processing options; cost; product marketing; simplicity; environmental interface; and the client’s corporate objectives.
Following selection of the optimum process flowsheet IMO delivers process packages, which include PFD’s, process design criteria, mass balances, major equipment lists, preliminary P&ID’s and a process description. A well defined process allows a fast track into engineering and streamlines the tendering of engineering packages. It also yields a better knowledge and more accurate evaluation of project risk.
