Comminution special issue published

Comminution '10 was held in Cape Town last April, and 72 papers were presented over the 4 days, covering a wide range, including breakage fundamentals, modelling and measurement of mill action, mechanistic modelling, applied process improvement and updates on equipment performance.

The International Comminution Research Association (ICRA) hosted a 2-day workshop prior to the conference to provide an update of the PEPT (positron emission particle tracking) technique, which provides an insight into the particle motion in realistic systems, and this led to many high calibre PEPT papers at the conference.

Twenty four of the papers presented were selected for publication in Volume 24 Issues 3-4, a special comminution volume of Minerals Engineering, and the papers can now be viewed and downloaded via ScienceDirect.

Draft papers presented at the conference are available on CD from MEI.

The next conference in the series, Comminution '12, will be held in Cape Town in April of next year.
