Pertti Lamberg to deliver keynote lecture at Process Mineralogy '14

It was good see Prof. Pertti Lamberg in Falmouth on Tuesday, and to finalise details for his keynote lecture at Process Mineralogy '14 in November.
Pertti's keynote will identify a way forward in process mineralogy, utilising automated mineralogy for modelling and simulating beneficiation processes.
Pertti started in 2009 as a professor in geometallurgy at LuleĆ„ University of Technology, Sweden. Before that he worked for 20 years in mining and technology companies Outokumpu and Outotec.  Pertti's research areas have covered lithogeochemical exploration of nickel sulphides, applied/process mineralogy, modelling and simulation of minerals processing and development of metallurgical software HSC Chemistry. His current activities are mainly in geometallurgy of iron ores and modelling of minerals processes based on particle properties.
 
His keynote complements that of Prof. Bernd Lottermoser, of the University of Exeter, UK, who will present "Predicting ore and waste characteristics: past, present, future".
 
If you would like to present a paper at the meeting, abstracts should be submitted by the end of this month. Current sponsors are:

  1. Traditionally the Process Mineralogy conferences have had a strong focus on the measurement and characterisation of ores, but generally little focus on how one can further the use of mineralogy data by modelling and simulation. Not only does he actively incorporate this into his own research, but also has some novel applications used in teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students and engaging them on how best to use mineralogy data. I look forward to Prof Lamberg's presentation.
