Geo-Metallurgical Studies of Rampura Agucha Deposit

Vishwanath, U and Prasad, K S and Joshi, A (2006) Geo-Metallurgical Studies of Rampura Agucha Deposit. In: Proceedings of the International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology and Indo-Korean Workshop on Resource Recycling (MPT-2006), March 8-10, 2006, NML, Chennai.



Rampura Agucha deposit which is the 5 th largest deposit in the world in terms of the reserves and 3'd largest in terms of metal production, is also one of the most complex deposit in the world in terms of its textural characteri-stics, due to its highly deformed nature. The paper details the results of Geo-metallurgical studies for identification of domains within the deposit with similar textural characteristics and their correlation with actual plant performance. As recovery performance of the valuable minerals directly impacts the profitability, the plant metallurgist would be very much interested in improvement of recovery performance of lead / zinc and the inputs of process mineralogy for understanding metallurgical process are very important and the insights provided by process mineralogy in understanding and improving the recovery processes are described.
