The Operational Model

The OPERATIONAL MODEL is a process engineering compendium that has been developed by Alexis Yovanovic since 1987 for several mineral processing mechanical operations. It establishes an analogy with chemical processes creating a new phenomenological interpretation for both the Comminution and the Concentration with Mineral Particles Transfer. The Operational Model defines how mineral particles would behave if they were molecules, always guiding them along the shortest path, just like the GPS for a driver.

La Convención estará orientada a plantear los desafíos que se requiere afrontar para que la minería continúe siendo un polo de desarrollo para Chile. El marco específico se refiere a lo que se necesita hacer en cuanto a atraer, seleccionar y desarrollar el Capital Humano adecuado al negocio. A la incorporación de las tecnologías que requiere la industria. Y finalmente a los proyectos que se requiere para alcanzar el objetivo de generar más valor para el sector.

O desempenho da indústria mineral em 2020 aponta para a melhoria em diversos indicadores, como atração de novos investimentos; exportação; faturamento; recolhimento de royalties e tributos; redução das importações; geração de empregos, entre outros. E as perspectivas são positivas para os próximos anos, segundo o Instituto Brasileiro de Mineração (IBRAM).

Isso significa mais negócios tanto para as mineradoras quanto para milhares de empresas Brasil afora, de diversos setores, que integram a cadeia de fornecedores do setor mineral.

Agora, em novembro, será a vez de conhecer de perto – e de forma totalmente segura – os novos projetos minerais no Brasil e expor às principais mineradoras de vários países as novidades em produtos e serviços. A Expo & Congresso Brasileiro de Mineração 2020 (EXPOSIBRAM 2020) será realizada de 24 a 26 de novembro, a partir de Belém (PA), em modelo inédito em sua história: 100% online.
