Scope: With the advent of the fourth industrial revolution, advanced digital technologies that facilitate engineering, design, optimization, and management are becoming increasingly pervasive across a wide range of industries. In extractive metallurgy, large processing plants often combine many unit operations together into highly complex and interdependent flowsheets, making them a rich field for potential application of 4IR technologies. This topic will explore past, present, and future research and development into the use of 4IR in the extractive metallurgy
