An update on MEI events

I'm back in the office now after my week in Zermatt (postings of 21st and 23rd March), and there have been some developments in forthcoming MEI Conferences during my absence.

The world's biggest gold producer, Barrick Gold Corporation, has agreed to sponsor Precious Metals '12 in Cape Town, joining Newmont Mining Corporation and Implats as major sponsors.

The number of delegates registered for next month's Comminution '12 passed 200 a few days ago, making this, the 8th International Comminution Symposium, the biggest in the series.

FLSmidth is a major sponsor for Comminution '12 and for next year's Flotation '13, and has also just agreed to sponsor Physical Separation '13 and Biohydrometallurgy '12, both of which will be held in Falmouth.

Registrations for Biohydrometallurgy are looking good. FLSmidth is sending a number of people, including Gaudin Gold Medallist Phil Thompson. Nine members of the strong biohydromet team at Central South University, China will also be represented at the conference.

Some more good news is that MEI's Minerals Engineers group now exceeds 2500 members.
