HomeMiningMetallurgy & Process DesignScoping Studies & Flowsheet Development
Efficient scoping studies and a complete process flowsheet allow you to:
A scoping study is the first stage in the metallurgical assessment of a project. The data gained through SGS scoping study testing, and the resulting scoping study, assess the potential of your project and help you to determine next steps. The data from the study also provides bankable proof of the viability of the project for financiers and stakeholders. We have the experience and global network of laboratories to conduct the specific metallurgical tests you need.
When your project is in the pre-feasibility or feasibility stage, we use the results of your scoping tests to develop a conceptual flowsheet.
Flowsheet development considers the particular ore and product characteristics to determine the most efficient and effective processing method. When changes must be made to an existing operation as a result of variability in ore-type, recovery targets, equipment, or environmental regulations, an SGS flowsheet, along with pilot plant testing, can significantly reduce your financial risk.
SGS has earned a global reputation as the leader in scoping studies and flowsheet development. Contact us today and learn how you can generate confidence in the viability of your project and obtain targeted practical solutions that streamline and optimize your operations while positioning to create lean efficiencies.
