Calls for Papers for Precious Metals and Nickel & Cobalt Ore Processing Conferences

Two of MEI's smaller conferences will run back to back in Falmouth, Cornwall in October.
Precious Metals '16 (#PreciousMetals16) will deal with all aspects of the processing of gold and PGM ores. Last year's event (posting of 15 May 2015) was attended by only 29 delegates from 12 countries, a record low which reflected the dire strait of gold and PGM prices at that time, but there are signs of improvement already in 2016, so there will be much to talk about.
Nickel and cobalt have also suffered badly in the mining recession but hopefully things will improve as the year progresses. Last year's event (posting of 16 May 2015) was very small but highly focused, with a great deal of emphasis on laterite processing, so this year Processing of Nickel & Cobalt Ores '16 (#NiCoProcessing16) aims to bring together researchers and plant operators to discuss all aspects of the physical and chemical processing of nickel and cobalt ores and concentrates, copper-nickel ores and Ni-Co laterites.
The two conferences, both media sponsored by International Mining, will provide ideal networking opportunities, and will run back to back at the St. Michael's Hotel in Falmouth. If you would like to present papers at either, or both, events, short abstracts should be submitted by the end of April.

All papers will be considered for publication in special issues of Minerals Engineering. The special issues for Precious Metals '15 and Nickel Processing '15 have just been published and are available on ScienceDirect.
