Cornish Mining Sundowner- June

The sun shone brightly last week for the SRCR '14 sundowner, and has continued to do so all week, so it was a very warm evening at the Chain Locker pub in Falmouth for today's Cornish Mining Sundowner. A disappointingly low turnout, however, probably due to tonight's vital World Cup match between England and Uruguay, which I rushed home to watch (even more disappointing!).

Good though to catch up with a few mineral processors, including Bentley Orchard of Weir Minerals, and Jim Turner, who graduated from CSM in1984 and is now based in nearby Penryn as a senior mineral processing engineer with Micon International.

Also in attendance were Steve Wilson, tailings backfill designer with Paterson & Cooke, and his colleague Paul Ainsworth, who graduated in the last batch of mineral processors from CSM in 2006.

The next Sundowner will be held on Thursday July 24th, and as always there is an open invitation to anyone who has any connection with the minerals industry to join us at the Chain Locker.
