Process Mineralogy '12 provisional programme published

As ores become ever more complex and refractory, the importance of mineralogy on their processing increases in importance, and this is reflected in the reputation that MEI’s Process Mineralogy conferences are achieving.

Process Mineralogy ’12, the 2nd in the series, has attracted high profile corporate sponsorship, and the high calibre programme has just been published.

Process mineralogy applied to base metals, precious metals, industrial minerals and coal processing is supplemented by a keynote lecture on ore characterization, process mineralogy and lab automation by Dr. Wolfgang Baum, of FLSmidth, USA.

Strongly featured in the programme are papers on geometallurgy, and mineralogical measurements, such as EDS/SEM techniques, XRD and image analysis, as well as the continued development of X-Ray computed tomography as an effective tool in process mineralogy, the subject of the second keynote lecture by Prof. Jan Miller, of the University of Utah, USA.

Registration for Process Mineralogy ’12 is now open, and the conference is followed by two more MEI events, Precious Metals ’12 and Nickel Processing ’12, so the Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town is the place to be in November.
