Metallurgy Engineering Simulation
“Hello, I’m Oliver. I’ve been solving metallurgical process challenges for over 20 years!”
It brings me great satisfaction to take on complex problems and return a neat solution, in the process making a client’s life easier.
I started my career in the hydrometallurgy of nickel, copper and cobalt sulphides, covering the design and operating aspects of pressure oxidation, iron removal, solvent extraction, electrowinning and ammonia recovery. Since then my metallurgical experience has grown to include pressure acid leaching, oxidative tank leaching and both sulphide and oxide heap leaching.
In 2004 I became involved in the computer modelling of these processes and have since become an expert METSIM user. In 2012 I completed a master’s degree in mathematics that enabled me to develop ITHACA, the dynamic process simulation application behind our dynamic modelling and digital twin offerings.
