MEI Online Update #428

Hello Everyone,
Here at MEI, we're gearing up to travel to Cape Town for Process Mineralogy '18 and Hi-Tech Metals '18. Both events take place at the wonderful Vineyard Hotel, with Process Mineralogy taking place at the start of the week (Nov. 19-21) and followed straight after by Hi-Tech Metals (Nov. 22-23). Process Mineralogy features an exhibition, and we have 2 booths left if you're interested, just contact Jon for details.
Of course, we haven't forgotten about our other upcoming events, and I'm very pleased to announce that we have some new sponsors join us. TOMRA Sorting Solutions have agreed to support Physical Separation '19 for the 4th time, whilst Outotec are sponsoring it for the first time - after showing their support previously as sponsors for many of our other events. Then later in the year, we have Flotation '19. Kemtec are the 13th sponsor of this event, having sponsored once before in 2017.
Looking ahead to 2020, ME Elecmetal are sponsoring Comminution '20 for the first time, although with 18 months still to go before the event, they are already the 9th sponsor! It looks like Comminution '20 is on course to be as popular as ever.
As mentioned in the last newsletter, we are trying to build our subscriber list back up. If you wish to be added to the list for future newsletters, please let me know.
