Abstract

As the importance of geo-environmental characterisation is increasingly recognised by mine operators at various life-of-mine stages, evaluating the application of analytical techniques and how they can be integrated into deposit-scale mineralogical domaining is vital. To enable a large throughput, hyperspectral mineral analysers are an effi cient tool to determine the neutralising characteristics of a deposit. However, microscaled textural evaluations (in situ temporal 3D characterisation, while prompt gamma neutron activation analysis could be used to screen waste materials during operations, enhancing the practice of waste control. Integrated use of all these tools will allow for early forecasting of the geo-environmental properties of future waste materials, creating the opportunity for transforming how waste materials are characterised and ultimately managed.
