The winning authors share their thoughts on the winning paper, which is a successful miner/vendor collaboration on how to design comminution circuit options for low energy and water. It brings together important solutions - including energy-efficient comminution, ancillary equipment, preconcentration and flotation - and presents compelling economic comparisons.

The practical, systematic technology approach, which incorporates financial analysis, has the potential to accelerate industry’s progress to deliver lower footprint minerals. It brings technologies together to show that you can save energy, save water and save money as well.
