Bulk Sorting


Bulk Sorting involves a wide variety of sensors capable of providing on-line information on grade (or a proxy of) in the dig and deliver material handling interface. This includes shovel buckets, trucks and conveyors. There are many technologies capable of coarse rock sensing ranging from surface based to fully penetrative; and providing elemental to mineralogical resolution. Amenability is a function of bench scale heterogeneity; resolution and accuracy of individual sensors; and rock interaction times and signal acquisition.

Separation potential for Bulk Sorting is dependant on the transfer of material from a spatial in-situ model to a temporal sequence of delivery via the dig and deliver interface.
