IMPC fast approaching

It is less than 2 months now to the year's premier mineral processing event, the XXV IMPC in Brisbane.

Billed as the 'Olympics of Mineral Processing', this is an event not to be missed, and Jon, Amanda and I will be there to represent MEI and enjoy the week's activities.

The preliminary scientific programme is now available. A feature at this event will be the Sustainability Workshop, a free event specifically designed for young professionals and graduate students, who have entered or are about to enter the minerals industry, as well as undergraduate and graduate students considering careers in the industry, who want to discuss and analyse the sustainability issues facing the mining industry and the challenges posed by society and the industry in meeting sustainability targets. Leading experts from industry, education and R&D, as well as members of the International Mineral Processing Council, have been invited to the workshop to share their views on sustainability.

We look forward to meeting old friends and new faces in Brisbane in September.


  1. JKTech is excited to be a part of the organising committee of this year's IMPC. We are preparing for our booth, presentations and the opportunity to meet with mineral processing personnel from around the world.

    Also don't forget the workshops before IMPC held by JK personnel: 'Flotation Optimisation - how to get the most out of your flotation circuit' on the 3rd Sept by Dr Dan Alexander and myself, as well as 'Process Mineralogy' on the 5th Sept by Prof Dee Bradshaw and Prof Steve Walters.

    In addition, Dr Mingwei Gao and Prof Dee Bradshaw will be leading a tour of research establishments, with visits to the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI) at the University of Queensland, the Julius Kruttschnitt Minerals Research Centre (JKMRC) at Indooroopilly, and CSIRO's Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) at Pinjarra Hills.

    For further information about these workshops and tours and registration, please visit the IMPC website at

    Please feel free to drop in at the JKTech booth and say 'g'day'!
