Process Mineralogy '14 is only 4 days away

Barbara and I are just about to leave for Heathrow, Jon and Amanda follow tomorrow. We are off to Cape Town for Process Mineralogy '14, which starts on Monday.

This is a much smaller conference than the previous two process mineralogy conferences, as times are hard in the mining industry at the moment due to falling commodity prices. The fortunes of the minerals industry rise and fall in cycles and we have learned that we must ride out these troughs and look forward to better times. Many of the regular faces will be missing next week due to companies cutting back on their travel budgets, but there will be quite a few new people to meet, so we look forward to an interesting week.

I will be publishing brief highlights each day, here and on Twitter (@barrywills) and a full report with photos is scheduled for publication on December 2nd.
