“Do things better” vs “Do things smarter”

It’s a good thing that Australian companies are throwing the word innovation around to try to change how they operate. Trouble is, too often, these refer to “doing things better” rather than “doing things smarter”. Innovation generally refers to a business’ ability to generate a stream of new products, services, processes and business models over time that are material to the organization. It can also mean changing the existing processes, or creating more effective processes, products, and ideas. For businesses, this mean implementing, creating or improving their status quo, observed through changes in their data streams.

Composite or variability samples for metallurgical testing?

Metallurgical tests are a critical input to mineral processing plant design and operating cost estimation. Compared to regular sampling and assaying for exploration and resource definition, metallurgical tests are expensive and require large sample masses. It’s not surprising then that the number of samples selected for metallurgical testing is relatively small.
