Precious Metals '10- Day 2

A lovely hot sunny day in Falmouth today. Only two delegates have failed to show at the conference, both from the JSC Chemical Company, Russia. It always amazes me that people can register, decide for some reason not to attend, and then do not have the courtesy to inform us by email.

Some of the delegates are looking a little worse for wear this morning after sampling the various fine hostelries of Falmouth. Amanda arrived 10.15 - can anyone beat leaving the pub at 1.30 am?

Another high quality session this morning, chaired by Dr. Rodney Jones of Mintek, South Africa and Dr. Isaac Amponsah, of Newmont, USA. Nine papers were presented, from Australia, South Africa, UK, USA, The Netherlands, Finland and Mexico. Dr. Mike Adams chaired the final session in the afternoon, with 6 papers from Canada, Australia, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, and USA. Mike then summarised the conference, before Amanda gave the final vote of thanks, inviting delegates to attend the next Precious Metals conference, which will be held in Cape Town in November 2012.

It has been a pleasure for us to organise this event for such a warm, friendly and knowledgeable group of people.
