Memories of Hydromet 2000

Following Flotation 2000, we had a long weekend break in Adelaide, before Hydromet 2000 began at the Adelaide Hilton 20 years ago today. Sixty five delegates from 13 countries attended the 3-day conference, which MEI organised in association with the University of Melbourne. Sponsorship was provided by AMIRA, Baker Process and Technomag.
A few photos from the event are shown below:
