From the MEI Archives #16- Brisbane 1998

In just over 4 weeks time Comminution '12 commences in Cape Town. With a record turnout of well over 200 delegates, this will be the largest in the series of International Comminution Symposia, the first being held in Camborne in 1989.  There was then a 9 year gap until the 2nd conference, held at the Sheraton Hotel, Brisbane in 1998.

There will be a few familiar faces in these photos. Below I am with John Mosher and friend (far left), John at that time being with Hazen Research, USA. Jannie van Deventer was then at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, and is now with the University of Melbourne. Far right is J.-P. Franzidis of the University of Cape Town, now one of MEI's consultants to Flotation '13.

Below I am with the late Peter King, then with the University of Utah, and Tim Napier-Munn, who was then Director of Australia's JKMRC.

Unfortunately these photos are all that we have in the archives, so it would be great to hear from anyone who has memories of this event.
