This joint webinar with AusIMM is the third installment of our series where we investigate the changing landscape of minerals processing projects through a project lifecycle.
Our first two webinars provided context to the series and outlined the importance of good studies to clearly define the value opportunity. This webinar focuses on the design of projects; our experts will explain how good designs capture and enhance the value identified in studies while enabling successful construction execution.
- The changing approach to design and the impact on project costs
- Designs for cost-effective projects
- How design schedules and vendor data affect outcomes
