Event description

Description

From Mine to Mill describes the progress of the Australian mining industry from a colonial outpost born out of the lust for gold, into one of the world's foremost mineral producers. Garry's lecture charts the development of the industry from the early gold rush days through to the present and also gives a glimpse of future trends. He describes the methodology used in developing a metalliferous mine from greenfield site to an operating mine and mineral processing complex. This includes the main mining methods and mining equipment used in a typical trackless underground mine and the various processes used to extract metal from run-of-mine ore.
The paper is amply illustrated with both photographs and drawings.
