Researchers from the University of Queensland’s Sustainable Minerals Institute and representatives from Anglo American, Aeris Resources, Eriez Flotation Division, Glencore, Hudbay Minerals, Newcrest Mining and Newmont have formed the Collaborative Consortium for Coarse Particle Processing Research, whose goal is to develop improved energy efficiency for mineral processing operations. 

In a press release, the parties involved said that the consortium will run initially for five years and will tackle multidisciplinary aspects of coarse particle processing such as flotation, comminution, classification, and equipment design and process chemistry.
