METSIM provides an interactive, fast and accurate means of solving costing, heat balance and

material balance problems in a vast number of applications.The software is used by many companies throughout the world to design, simulate and control operations from mine to tailings and everything in between. At its absolute simplest, METSIM software can be used to create a process flowsheet. The modules in METSIM covers mass and energy balances for either steady-state or dynamic simulations of mine, stockpile, heap leach, material handling, comminution, beneficiation, hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, gas and steam handling, and tailings management processes.


JKSimMet is an award-wining general-purpose computer software package for the analysis of comminution and classification circuits in mineral processing operations. It incorporates industrial strength models developed at the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre. The package is designed for plant and development metallurgists who wish to apply process analysis techniques to characterize plant behavior and design engineers who require process simulation models to assess design alternatives.

JKSimMet integrates all tasks associated with data analysis, optimization, design and simulation, including the storage and manipulation of models, data and results, within one package. Mass balancing and model fitting of complete circuits are standard features. It is fully interactive and operates with high-resolution color graphics. These graphics facilitate the display of detailed plant flowsheets and accompanying information.
