The sun sets on a fine week of conferences in Namibia

Sustainable Minerals '18 finished yesterday afternoon, with a final sundowner by the pool at our wonderful new venue, the Windhoek Country Club.

Namibia in June proved to be a good choice, with its relatively mild winter temperatures. At 1655 metres altitude Windhoek is the world's 12th highest capital city, and mid-day temperatures reached a pleasant 25C, plummeting fast after sunset to as low as 2C.
Many of the delegates are taking the opportunity of exploring this beautiful African country, and we invite you to submit photos of your adventures to us for possible publication on the blog.
I will be publishing full reports on Biohydromet '18 and Sustainable Minerals '18 during week beginning June 25th.
The next MEI events are in Cape Town in November. Hi-Tech Metals '18 follows Process Mineralogy '18 at the Vineyard Hotel. If you would like to present papers at either of these two events, please send your abstracts as soon as possible, as we will be assessing submissions later this month (more details on the posting of 3rd May).
