Special Comminution issue of Minerals Engineering published

Rather belatedly, as the electronic version has been available for a while, I received Volumes 43-44 (April 2013) of Minerals Engineering this morning, a special issue containing papers presented at Comminution '12.

Comminution ’12 was the 8th in the series of international comminution symposia, and was held at the Vineyard Hotel, Cape Town, from April 17th-20th, 2012. Over 70 papers were presented, from which 19 were selected for publication in the special issue. Draft papers of all the papers presented are available on CD from MEI.

It was particularly encouraging to see industry interacting with academic researchers to develop new techniques, collaboration increasing in importance and developing as a result of networking at conferences such as this. Strong corporate support for the conference is evidenced by the 18 company logos adding colour to the front cover of the issue.


Comminution has an exciting future, and we look forward to reports of new developments at Comminution '14. It was interesting to see a quote from comminution legend Prof. Alban Lynch in this month's MetSoc newsletter :  "Future areas of innovation (in mineral processing) must be in areas like pre-concentration, very fine grinding and classification".
