Learn the language of coal based on the distribution of macerals and minerals across individual particles

CSIRO's coal grain analysis (CGA) technology dramatically improves our understanding of the nature of coal in particulate form. This innovative and game-changing product has been the subject of more than 22 research projects sponsored by ACARP over the past 16 years.

More information

At these workshops, attendees will receive interactive presentations from the leading researchers who are using this technology to improve day-to-day planning and operational matters. Aside from learning what CGA means and the information it provides, participants will learn about its applications in:

  • Coal characterisation and reducing the costs of resource definition
  • CPP feed washability determination
  • Alternative means for CPP unit process auditing, optimisation and modelling
  • Improved understanding of utilisation performance and caking characteristics, and
  • Quantification of environmental dust composition.

The cost to attend is $330 (GST inclusive) and participants will receive workshop materials, electronic copies of 15 published CGA ACARP Reports (value $660) as well as morning tea and lunch.
