Introduction to Metal Balancing & Reconciliation

Introduction to Metal Balancing & Reconciliation


This text book is one outcome of the AMIRA Metal Accounting and Reconciliation Project P754. P754 is a collaborative research project which addressed the need for a more standardised approach to metal accounting in the mineral industry. A key outcome of P754 is a Code of Practice and supporting guidelines.

The industrial sponsors of P754 - Anglo Platinum, Anglo American Technical Division, BHPBilliton, Rio Tinto, Zincor (a Division of Exxaro Resources) and Namakwa Sands (at the time, a Division of Anglo Base Metals) - have made the code and guidelines freely available to the industry to encourage their wider adoption. While the code and guidelines provide principles to be followed and advice, this text book provides a more detailed guide on how the principles can be put into practice. It also covers application to a wide range of mineral products and commodities.

The research providers for P754 were the University of Queensland through the JKMRC, the University of Cape Town Centre for Mineral Research and the University of Stellenbosch. Seven post graduate students were supported by the project.
