2645 - Kinross Lobo-Marte Project Concentrator Plant Dynamic Simulation
Determine capacities, identify bottlenecks and clearances in material handling, considering availability established in the basic engineering in order to establish the process engineering design criteria for the Lobo-Marte gold project Feasibility Study.
Through dynamic simulation of the concentrator plant process, programming developed in Matlab Simulink was designed to standardize the behavior of the plant process, considering the simplified logic of control, balances (mass, water, and energy) and material handling. This allowed to assess possible scenarios modifying criteria or lines of the process and thus permitting the optimal operation of the plant.
The main bottlenecks generated by the original design of the process plant were resolved. In addition, future design changes and their approval for feasibility engineering advances are determined.
