Adrian Dance is a Principal Metallurgist with SRK Canada and has a Bachelor of Applied Science from UBC in Canada and a Doctorate in Mineral Processing from the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre in Australia. With over 25 years in his field, Adrian has both industrial and consulting experience, working at operations in Australia, Canada and Peru. For the past five years, Adrian has established himself as an authority on comminution (crushing & grinding) circuit operation and practices a proven methodology in gaining improvements from “Mine-to-Mill” optimisation projects.

Adrian has spent most of his career working with existing operations to gain added efficiency. With SRK, he is now providing similar expertise to green or brownfield sites to get similar benefits very early in the mine life, in particular, the development of mill forecasting models embedded in the resource/geological block model, or geometallurgical modelling.

His has published numerous technical papers, presented at international conferences as well as conducted training courses around the world. He specialises in:

  • Comminution (crushing/grinding) circuit design, commissioning & control
  • Mine-to-Mill plant optimisation
  • Plant audits, review and optimisation studies
  • Geometallurgical mill forecasting and ore hardness testwork
  • Advanced control systems and image analysis
