About the book:
Run-of-mine ore processing is a method of added value in which undesirable gangue-bearing minerals are discarded to obtain the desired minerals. Mineral processing has tangible benefits including savings in freight and handling, and the recovery of metal values from the slag as well as intangible benefits such as mineral conservation, environment protection by filling the mine using gangue-bearing minerals, and energy saving. This book provides rudimental, theoretical and operational knowledge of mineral processing along with coal characterisation and processing of ores of metallic and industrial minerals. It also explains definitions and techniques, along with basic formulas and practical examples.
This book is designed for professionals in geology, mining, mineral, metallurgical and chemical engineering. The eccentric feature of this book is the introduction of simple numerical calculations for evaluation of the processes which in turn help understand the concepts with enhanced clarity and handle day-to-day operations of mineral processing plants. Therefore, it can be used both as a simple reference guide and a concise course in mineral processing.
About the Authors:
D.V. Subba Rao did his B.Tech (Chemical Engineering) and M.Sc (Mineral Process Engineering) from Andhra University. He worked as teacher and Head of the department of Mineral Beneficiation and taught to 33 batches of undergraduate students. Over the years he developed course curriculum by adapting time-brought world changes like introducing process calculations and computational mathematics at the undergraduate level and shaped the department competitive to mining engineering schools elsewhere. He conducted induction and advanced training courses for in-service engineers of reputed mineral organizations viz., Essar Steels, Tega Industries, Hindustan Zinc Limited, Trimex Sands etc. and won their approbation. His eminent and outstanding contributions to the profession of mineral engineering particularly his three books (1) Mineral Beneficiation – A Concise Basic Course, (2) Coal Processing and Utilization & (3) Minerals and Coal Process Calculations of international publications, brought national recognition and he has been given life time achievement award by the Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers.
