AusIMM Kalgoorlie MetsFest 2019

PETRA is proud to be sponsoring the 2019 AusIMM Kalgoorlie Branch MetsFest, and delighted that Technical Director, Dr Zeljka Pokrajcic was invited to present case studies at the Metallurgical Symposium.  By all accounts, her presentation was very well received, with people commenting how valuable it is to see real case studies. Zeljka shared six case studies showing how MAXTA digital twin models increase recovery and throughput across the mine value chain.
