Biohydromet '10 date fixed

The 6th Biohydromet conference has been brought forward a few months, and will be held in Cape Town in November 2010, back to back with Process Mineralogy ’10.

This is to avoid the clashes with the International Biohydrometallurgy Symposium, which is also held biennially, this year in Argentina in September.

Although Biohydromet ’10 will be MEI’s 6th conference in the sequence, some of you may remember Biotec ’96, which was held in Falmouth in March 1996, in association with CSMA.

This was my first meeting with our Biohydromet consultant, Dr. (now Prof.) Sue Harrison of University of Cape Town.

In this photograph, taken at one of Falmouth’s excellent sea-food restaurants are (left to right) Jim Watson (UK), me, John Wells (Chile), Barbara, Sue Harrison (South Africa), Jan Cilliers (UK), Frank Crundwell (South Africa) and Andy Sarosi (UK).
