PIM '10 off to a good start

Jon opened Processing of Industrial Minerals '10 this morning. Quite a few delegates arrived late, due to the horrendous early morning traffic in Istanbul.
Jon introduced our consultant, Prof. Guven Onal, of Istanbul Technical University, who talked about Turkey's considerable mineral reserves, located mainly in Anatolia. The country is a major producer of industrial minerals, notably of borates, chromite, feldspar, marble and clays, as well as significant amounts of coal.
During the first, extended, coffee break, delegates had the opportunity of discussing the 8 poster presentations with the corresponding authors.
