A review of the state of art and trends in automation and control of hydrometallallurgic processes is presented. Besides the great expansion of hydrometallurgic processes world-wide, there are a number of unsolved problems related to lack of intrumentation, lack of process knowledge, odd operating practices and in general, lack of use of data management and processing. In general, process control of local objectives are frequently achieved, however, application of mature and new techniques, successfully adopted in other mineral processing plants, are seldom reported. In the near future it is expected that intelligent techniques will be incorporated to solve a large variety of problems. © Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
