The project budget is A$4.7 million over 3 years and sponsorships range from A$40,000/y for a Supplier Sponsor, A$90,000/y for an Operator Sponsor and A$140,000/y for a Major Operator Sponsor. Work is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2012.More information on either projec: Contact [email protected] With International Mining’s ever popular Paste Supplement coming up in the April issue, we have news of two interesting AMIRA projects. Heading towards a predictive full thickener model, the proposal for P266G, the new phase of the successful Improving Thickener Technology project, is now in circulation. New project P1087, Integrated Tailings Management will focus on paste and thickened tailings (P&TT) technologies and an integrated suite of measurement and modeling tools linking the thickener, to tailings transport and the tailings storage facility (TSF). Over its 20+ year life, the thickener project has delivered considerable benefits to sponsoring companies. Sponsors have acknowledged direct financial benefits of A$500+ million (NPV) from implementation of P266 project outcomes within their operations. P266G will build upon this success.Sponsorships are available. In an overall project budget of A$5.3 million, the leverage on research investment for individual sponsors will substantial; up to 25 times for an operating sponsor, AMIRA says.The project scope is broad, with the over-riding goal being the completion and application of a full thickener model, able to fully predict shifts in output properties on the basis of feed, flocculant or operating condition changes. Technology transfer is a strong component of the project and sponsors get exclusive access to the research team and their measurement/modelling capabilities for optimising operating conditions, design evaluation and problem-solving. Web-based resources include the Online Thickener Self-appraisal tool, Knowledge Base, and Sedimentation and Rake Torque models.Work is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2012.Acquire the tools to capture tailings benefits, take the opportunity to participate in this new AMIRA project. Companies involved with operating, designing, supplying equipment or reagents to tailings operations will benefit, whether evaluating P&TT options for existing or planned operations, or considering changing from hydraulic disposal.Technical expertise will be provided by CSIRO, ATC Williams, the University of Western Australia and Monash University.Sponsor benefits will include: Improved ability to make reliable predictions about TSF performance under a range of conditions, such as the mineral system, throughput, climate, topography, etc over the life of the mineImproved water recoveryOptimised TSF footprintA techo-economic model to investigate prospective scenarios.

His eviction from the embassy on April 11 came after a souring of relations, with Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno claiming Assange had tried to use the Knightsbridge site for spying. Julian Assange has dropped an appeal against his 50-week jail term for jumping bail by going into hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy.The WikiLeaks founder entered the embassy in London in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he was wanted in connection with sexual offences allegations.He spent nearly seven years living in the embassy until being dramatically dragged out by police in April after Ecuador revoked his political asylum.The 48-year-old was jailed for 50 weeks for breaching his bail conditions, just short of the one-year maximum for the offence.He lodged an appeal against the length of his sentence and a hearing was due to take place at the Court of Appeal in London on July 23.But Assange is no longer pursuing the appeal and a spokeswoman for the judiciary confirmed on Thursday that the planned hearing had been cancelled.Assange entered the embassy on June 19 2012 while under intense scrutiny over the leaks of hundreds of thousands of classified US diplomatic cables on his whistle-blowing website.The drastic move came after he exhausted all legal options in fighting extradition to Sweden over two separate allegations – one of rape and one of molestation.Assange, claiming he was the subject of an American “witch hunt”, said he was at risk of being taken to the US if he was sent to the Scandinavian nation.
The increase in infections has raised the downside risks to the economic outlook and suggests the reopening of the US economy may be more protracted than many initially anticipated, Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester said in a speech for the Liberal Arts Macroeconomics Conference.The rising case load offers “a stark reminder that there are several different scenarios that could play out,” Mester said.Jobless Americans and state and local governments will need more aid to make it through the crisis, Kaplan said. Lawmakers missed a deadline last week for extending a US$600 weekly supplement to state unemployment benefits, and are in the midst of negotiating another round of stimulus.“I believe the economy needs a continuation of the unemployment benefits,” Kaplan said. “It may not need to be in the same form as it currently is, but we need a continuation.” A resurgence in coronavirus cases is slowing the economic recovery and the pandemic will continue to weigh on the US economy and American life for longer than initially expected, three Federal Reserve policymakers said on Wednesday.The US economy began to grow in May and June after taking a monumental hit beginning in March. But growth stalled in July as infections spiked in some parts of the country, leading to fresh restrictions, US central bankers said.“The issue with the resurgence in the virus is it slowed down or somewhat muted the recovery we’ve been expecting,” Robert Kaplan, the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank president, said in an interview with CNN. Mester also said more fiscal support is needed to bolster struggling businesses, households and consumers, and she said she was hopeful that Congress will pass a stimulus bill.“The country has a responsibility to help them over that, to bridge that period, until we can get the economy going again,” Mester said during the webinar.While US economic growth slowed in July, it could pick up in the third quarter and reach pre-pandemic levels by the end of next year, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida said on CNBC.“It will take some time, I believe, before we get back to the level of activity that we were in February before the pandemic hit,” Clarida said.Clarida said his personal forecast for the economy hasn’t changed because of the recent resurgence of the virus in the United States, since the economic momentum from May through early July was stronger than he expected. He also expects support from another fiscal package should even things out.Kaplan forecast that for the 2020 full year, the economy will contract by 5 percent, while Mester forecast a contraction of 6 percent, from the end of 2019.Fed officials pledged at their policy meeting last week to do what they can to help the economy rebound from the recession that began in February as the coronavirus outbreak spread across the globe. The US central bank has cut interest rates to near zero and rolled out roughly a dozen emergency programs to backstop financial markets and support businesses.Asked about the tepid use of the Fed’s Main Street Lending Program, which is designed to help small and mid-sized businesses, Clarida said the facilities are meant to serve as backstops and that officials are open to changing the program if needed to reach more businesses.“I do expect activity in the program to pick up,” Clarida said. “We’re focused on the goal of supporting the economy and if we need to adjust our programs we will do so.”Mester also said Wednesday that she supports making more adjustments to the Fed’s facilities if needed. “Given the nature of this shock to the economy, I’d be prepared to take more credit risk than I would have been in the past,” Mester told reporters.Topics :
