Geometallurgical Simulation and Multicriteria Risk Evaluation

The evaluation of mining projects depends on modern computational techniques. There is a demand for increasingly sophisticated techniques, due to environmental considerations and the drive toward increasingly complex ores. Without these techniques, projects may be wrongfully held back or abandoned, leading to severe socioeconomic consequences in the surrounding communities. Conversely, mining projects may be wrongfully approved, causing unfortunate environmental and socioeconomic consequences.
