|Nick, Barbara, Tony, Dave, Flee and me|

Due to other commitments last night was my first Cornwall Mining Sundowner since January. Our normal summer haunt, Falmouth's Chain Locker is currently undergoing extensive renovation, so for the foreseeable future the sundowner venue will be shunted around west Cornwall.
Last night's meeting was in the north Cornwall village of Portreath, in the Portreath Arms Hotel, with a busy bar which just about managed to accommodate the 20+ regular sundowners, and a few new faces.
The mineral processing contingent was made up of myself, and my old CSM colleague Tony Clarke, as well as Nick and Flee Wilshaw, of Comminution '18 sponsor Grinding Solutions Ltd, and Dave Goldburn, formerly with SGS Minerals Services. SGS recently abandoned its UK operation in Cornwall, and Dave is now Operations Manager with Physical Separation '17 sponsor Holman-Wilfley. I look forward to seeing both Nick and Dave at Physical Separation '17 in 3 weeks time, when our usual first evening coastal path walk will this year end with drinks at the Quayside Inn, rather than our familiar Chain Locker.
