? Highlights:

• Veins contribute to an increased degree of liberation.
• Veins allow liberation to occur at coarser particle size.
• The scale at which liberation analysis is undertaken is important.
• Core scale textural data improves prediction in geometallurgical characterisation.
• Veins can be used as proxy to liberation in geometallurgical characterisation.


This paper provides a further investigation of the role of vein structures in the ease of mineral liberation by random masking simulation of breakage. A copper porphyry ore with vein-type mineralisation underwent different methods of sample preparation for liberation analysis. A selected core was cut into semicircular slabs and another core underwent crushing. The slabs and the crushed particles were analysed in the MLA and subjected to simulated breakage from which the liberation of sulphides was determined. The result was linked with the liberation measured from particles of the same ore that have undergone actual breakage. The analysis further provided an indication of the significant contribution of veins in liberation. This information points out to a proper approach of texture and liberation analyses, and the better use of textural data from core scale logging relevant to mineral processing.

Check out Dr. Joey D. Ocon et al.'s new publication entitled "Electrochemical Oxidation Remediation of Real Wastewater Effluents — A Review" published on Process Safety and Environmental Protection, Elsevier, Volume 340.

The article is accessible within library networks and via remote access on https://doi.org/10.1016/j.psep.2017.09.014


• Exhaustive review of applied electrochemical oxidation to treat actual effluents.
• Electrogenerated active chlorine species and hydroxyl radicals are the main oxidants of organic pollutants.
• Disinfection of wastewaters also feasible by electrochemical oxidation.
• Combined electrochemical oxidation with other technologies as integrated, pre- or post-treatment.


Fate and health risks associated with persistent organic pollutants present in water effluents are one of the major environmental challenges of this century. In this paper, the electrochemical advanced oxidation process electrochemical oxidation is reviewed for its performance over the treatment of actual industrial and urban effluents. The electrochemical treatment of industrial effluents resulting from textile dyeing, petrochemical, paper mill, tannery industry as well as the treatment of domestic and urban wastewaters are discussed. Furthermore, the combination of electrochemical oxidation with other water treatment technologies as pre-treatment, post-treatment, and integrated treatment is also examined.
