A fine ending to the first day of Biohydromet '16

Yesterday's awful weather persisted throughout the night and into this morning. To brighten things up we had a fine start to the conference with a great keynote from Frank Roberto of Newmont Mining, USA, followed by papers from Australia, Finland, Germany, South Africa and UK.
By mid-afternoon the rain had finally stopped, and we enjoyed a pleasant stroll along the coast into old Falmouth, where the finest Cornish ales awaited us at the 17th century Chain Locker pub.

We all dispersed later to various eating houses, the MEI team to the excellent The Shack Restaurant, where we were guests of Elsevier executive publishing manager, Dean Eastbury, and joined by Kathryn Hadler and Kristian Waters, editors of International Journal of Mineral Processing.
