Comminution '14- Final Call for Abstracts

Mineral processing legend Prof. Alban Lynch recently forecast that comminution would be the most important area for mineral processing this century. There is certainly a lot happening in this field, with equipment and circuits evolving rapidly. At the recent ESCC ’13 in Germany it was interesting to see the ultrafine grinding machines that are used outside the mining industry, but which may feature in future fine grinding circuits.
 Next year’s Comminution ’14 in Cape Town promises to be the biggest in the series, with 22 major companies already providing corporate support.

 We expect a large international audience, mainly from the minerals industry, but hopefully also from other industries who can bring fresh ideas to the meeting. Prof. Tim Napier-Munn, formerly Director of Australia’s JKMRC, will present the first keynote paper “Is progress in energy-efficient comminution doomed?” and Alan Muir of AngloGold Ashanti, South Africa will present the second keynote “The next stage of evolution in comminution”.
Comminution '12 special issue
There is now a final call for abstracts for the conference. Abstracts should be submitted by the end of October. All accepted papers will be published in draft form in the conference Proceedings, and after the conference all authors will be invited to submit final papers for peer-review for a special comminution issue of Minerals Engineering.
 Registration for the exhibition has been open for some time. There are only 4 booths available at the moment, so if you would like to exhibit, please register as soon as you can.
