Comminution Handbook Launched at MetPlant '15

The Comminution Handbook (posting of 24th August) will be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of many practicing metallurgists and process engineers, as it has been many years since there has been a new publication of kind. Its sixteen chapters are structured around the themes of breakage characterisation, processing equipment, circuit design and process optimisation and control.

Edited by Prof. Alban Lynch, with contributions from 38 world experts, the book was launched last Monday in Perth, on the first day of MetPlant '15 organised by the AusIMM (see MEI Online for report on the conference). MEI was a media partner for the conference and I wish I could have attended to meet members of the Lynch family who were there to launch the book. Due to a recent fall, Alban could not be there in person, but his son Martin, daughter Suzy and grandson Clem were, together with his daughter-in-law Elizabeth (married to son Patrick, who was away.

Also in the photo below, kindly supplied by Suzy, are Janine Herzig, who officially launched the book on behalf of the AusIMM, and Greg Lane, a valuable contributor to the book, from Ausenco.

I believe the book is set to become a seminal volume, and the MetPlant conference delegates clearly agreed, all 56 copies brought to Perth by the AusIMM staff being sold on the spot, with back-orders taken for many more.
