The package is designed for plant metallurgists who wish to apply process analysis techniques to characterise plant performance for optimisation purposes, and design engineers who require process simulation models to assess design alternatives. The recently released upgrade, JKSimMet Version 6.0.1, with enhanced features, will be used for all JKSimMet Training in 2011. JKSimMet integrates all tasks associated with data analysis, optimisation, design and simulation, including the storage and manipulation of models, data and results, in one package. The package operates in three modes – mass balancing of raw plant data; model development using the balanced data; and simulation using the fully developed model. It is fully interactive and operates with high-resolution colour graphics. These graphics facilitate the display.   COURSE OBJECTIVES• Analyse industrial plant data• Review the JKMRC comminution and classification models• Review plant sampling principals and practice techniques• Review ore characterisation using the JK Breakage Tests• Learn and practise the concepts of mass balancing• Learn and practise the concepts of model-fitting• Simulate and optimise grinding and classification circuits• Simulate and optimise crushing and screening circuits. COURSE OUTLINEThis course provides training for those who wish to model, simulate and optimise crushing and grinding circuits. It will cover each of the models and demonstrate the model fitting procedure. The topics covered will include:• Overview of comminution modelling at the JKMRC• Mass balancing (including size-by-assay data)• Hydrocyclone modelling• Ball mill modelling• AG/SAG mill modelling• Crusher, HPGR and screen modelling• Data sampling and collection techniques• Comminution Circuit DesignAttendees are encouraged to bring some survey data with them for analysis with JKSimMet. This course willhave a heavy emphasis on ‘hands-on’ work and one computer will be available for each attendee.

Percy Madrid
Percy Madrid graduated from Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria in Lima, Peru in 2002 with a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Metallurgical Engineering. After his first years in the industry, Percy joined the Peruvian representative company of JKTech where he was worked with all of JKTech’s technology tools, including the comminution circuit modelling and simulation software. Percy has given software training courses and developed steady state models for many plants in Peru. Percy joined JKTech in 2009 after working for Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold, Cerro Verde mine in Peru, as a Metallurgical Engineer.

Other Program Leaders include: Dr Tapiwa Chenje, Vas Matei, Chris Bailey, and Sebastian Tello.
