It's that time of year again

The world is noticeably winding down now in preparation for the longest holiday of the year. I have effectively shut down Minerals Engineering journal until the New Year, so apologies if you have just submitted, or are about to submit, papers- finding reviewers willing to referee manuscripts over the Christmas period is not an easy task.

It is also the 'office party' season, and on Friday the MEI family had a quiet Christmas lunch together at Falmouth's lovely restaurant The Cove.

Yesterday was lunch again, this time in Redruth for the annual Camborne School of Mines Association Christmas lunch, always a good time to catch up with faces from the past, including 91-year old former lecturer and colleague Ron Hooper (pictured first left below with Tony Batchelor and Nick Eastwood). And also a good time to catch up with the latest news and gossip. This year I was pleased to hear that CSM will be starting up its MSc course in Minerals Engineering again next September, making it the only University in the UK offering a teaching course in mineral processing.
