Metcelerate is a proud sponsor of the Procemin-Geomet 2022 Conference, on Mineral Processing and Geometallurgy

A workplace-based training program for mineral processing engineers to transform their value to the organisation by translating academic knowledge and skills to practice.

It is estimated that less than 10% of what metallurgists need to perform optimally on the job, they learn at university. There is a need for practical training to build technical competence.

Metcelerate is an industry-wide holistic solution to training that addresses the full spectrum of skills required.

Metcelerate was created by world-leading subject matter experts that have a unique combination of skills, networks, industry and education experience. They have worked and trained across the world solving industry problems and improving mining profitability.

Created by the best people to create the best capabilities.

It works in practice, to quote participants


It covers real life job issues and technical problems as well as theory.


Metcelerate has extracted the knowledge of the ‘sages’ of metallurgy.


Metcelerate helps tie the pieces together of what I have already learned on the job.


I compare progress and identify how I can do it better leading to more productivity.


I now have a full understanding of how to do data from scratch and analyse.


It saves us from reinventing the wheel. It accelerates.
