Loesche to sponsor Comminution '18
Loesche is an owner-managed engineering company founded in Berlin in 1906 and currently based in Düsseldorf, Germany that designs, manufactures and services vertical roller mills for grinding of coal, cement raw materials, granulated slag, industrial minerals and ores.
The Loesche Vertical Roller Mills (VRM) have been used since the 1930s to grind cement raw material. They operate with two, three, four or six rollers and combine drying, grinding and classification operations in one unit.
Loesche was a sponsor of Comminution '16, where a number of papers were presented showing how these mills are now being used successfully in hard rock applications, and we are pleased to welcome the company as the 9th sponsor of Comminution '18.
Gold Ore Processing 2nd edition
The new edition of Gold Ore Processing: Project Development and Operations, edited by Mike Adams, Associate Editor of Elsevier's Hydrometallurgy, brings together all the technical aspects relevant to modern gold ore processing, offering a practical perspective that is vital to the successful and responsible development, operation, and closure of any gold ore processing operation. This completely updated edition features coverage of established, newly implemented, and emerging technologies; updated case studies; and additional topics, including automated mineralogy and geometallurgy, cyanide code compliance, recovery of gold from e-waste, handling of gaseous emissions, mercury and arsenic, emerging non-cyanide leaching systems, hydro re-mining, water management, solid-liquid separation, and treatment of challenging ores such as double refractory carbonaceous sulfides. Outlining best practices in gold processing from a variety of perspectives, this volume is an ideal reference for anyone working in the gold industry, including metallurgists, geologists, chemists, mining engineers, and many others.
Mineral Processing for Sustainable Growth
Sustainable Minerals '16 was held in Falmouth last month, and the first speaker at the event was Prof. Robin Batterham, of the University of Melbourne. Appropriately Robin is also the first speaker on an excellent 19 minute video, produced by the International Mineral Processing Council during the 2012 IMPC in New Delhi. The other eminent speakers who give their views on sustainability and mineral processing's important role are the late Roberto Villas-Boas, John Herbst, Janusz Laskowski, Ponisseril Somasundaran, T.C. Rao, Prakash Kapur and Cyril O'Connor.
