Around 20 hardy souls braved the atrocious weather last night for the first Cornish Mining Sundowner of the year, at the County Arms pub in Truro.
Congregating around the bar were six mineral processors. My ex-CSM colleague, and Cornish mining historian Tony Clarke was with Pete Walsh and Dave Dew, who graduated from CSM in 1979. Dave will be playing a big part in Biohydromet '16 in June, as the first keynote speaker. CSM's Paul Norris will also be presenting work, on high temperature bioleaching, at the conference. And Nick Wilshaw, of Grinding Solutions Ltd, will be at Comminution '16 in April as a sponsor.
The next Cornish Mining Sundowner will be held at the University of Exeter in Cornwall's Tremough Campus in Penryn on Tuesday 16th February. If you are in the area it would be great to see you.
