An interview with FLSmidth's Wolfgang Baum

Process Mineralogy '12 is fast approaching and is set to be a major event, with eight corporate sponsors. One of those sponsors is the USA company FLSmidth, whose Dr. Wolfgang Baum will be presenting a keynote lecture at the conference.


FLSmidth opened a new Minerals Testing Centre in Salt Lake City in March, and in the September 2012 issue of Mining Magazine (pps. 166-168), Dr. Baum, who is director of the Ore Characterisation and Process Mineralogy Labs., explains why his team is the first port of call for mines looking to optimise their processes and troubleshoot existing circuits. Several of FLSmidth's competitors have mineral testing and processing centres, but Dr. Baum felt that the professional experience, staffing and equipment make the FLSmidth labs a unique flagship facility that is an industry leader.

It will be interesting to hear the views of conference delegates on this in November.
