Recording Now Available: Adelaide Branch – Digital Tech Talk: Integration of SX and IX in Future Honeymoon Operations
Viewers will gain insights into problem solving in hydrometallurgical design and considerations in uranium ISR project development.
Presenter: Bryn Jones, Technical Director – Boss Resources
Digital Tech Talk Overview
Supported by ANSTO, Groundwater Science and Inception Consulting Engineers, Boss Resources has embarked on a series of technical projects aimed at demonstrating the Project’s capability to meet its export permit production capability. One of the key challenges faced in the design of the Honeymoon restart process was the integration of the newly established resin ion exchange (IX) circuit with the previously operated solvent extraction circuit and precipitation circuits.
Adelaide-based Bryn Jones (MMinEng) is an industrial chemist and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM), with more than 20 years of experience in the Australian uranium industry. He has worked in all aspects of the mining cycle, particularly in uranium in-situ recovery (ISR) and mine development and production.
Prior to Bryn’s talk, we will hear a short presentation from Michael Phillips, SAusIMM, final year student at The University of Adelaide studying a Double Degree in Chemical Engineering and Finance. Michael will be presenting work from his final year project titled ‘In-Situ Density Measurement of Liquid Emulsion Explosives’. Michael is also the recipient of an EEF Premium Scholarship as well as the Sir Frank Espie/Rio Tinto Leadership Award for 2020.
Bryn & Michael kick off our new and exciting digital tech talk series for 2020 with the Branch’s first live webinar. This new platform will allow all Members, non-members and students the flexibility of attending from home or workplace, with the opportunity for questions at the end of the presentation. Please join us for this great technical event – delivered differently.
