Independent Metallurgical Operations (IMO) is a Perth, Australia based consultancy and laboratory offering a range of process metallurgy services with two divisions focusing on Project Services and Operations Services.
Project Services includes scoping, pre-feasibility and feasibility level mineralogical studies, metallurgical test work and process flow sheet development. IMO utilises its experience in developing process solutions for over 500 projects worldwide to generate practical, cost effective treatment options to produce saleable commodities. This also gives IMO an advantage in conducting peer reviews and risk assessments.
Operations Services includes plant construction, commissioning, optimisation and operation. IMO utilises its operational experience in over 100 plants worldwide to operate and optimise mineral treatment plants, laboratories and mining projects. IMO’s extensive experience also enables them to identify and procure the right process equipment for a plant and conduct wide ranging plant optimisation studies.
IMO has considerable experience in a range of commodities, including:
- Precious metals
- Iron ore
- Rare earths
- Base metals
- Heavy metals
- Mineral Sands
Signal Delta Pars (SDP) has worked with IMO as its preferred metallurgical solutions provider for several years. This is because IMO tailors the process to the ore rather than simply applying an “off the shelf” process.
