Physical Separation '11 timetable published

Wheal Bassett, Cornwall
The provisional timetable for Physical Separation '11, which will be held in Falmouth in June, is now available. The timetable includes a tour of the historic Camborne-Redruth mining area- the birthplace of modern mining.

As the timetable evolves, changes will be announced on Twitter.

The registration form for the conference is also now available on the website.

Physical Separation '11 immediately follows Computational Modelling '11 at the same venue, and there are discounts available for delegates attending both events.


  1. Physical separation methods are growing in importance in their promise to provide water-efficient means of separation of complex mixtures in the mineral and recycling area. Its interesting to see the renaissance of these classical methods as we begin to understand better how to design them to enhance selectivity and exploit physical differences in important factors such as particle shape and surface texture even!

  2. I totally agree Richard. They are relatively simple, cheap and environmentally friendly- no reagents for instance. For anyone interested, it is not too late to submit an abstract, and the timetable includes a visit to the historic Camborne-Redruth mining area, where the most famous ore-dressing archaelogical sites can be found. A pilgrimage which every mineral processor should undertake!
