1st Call for Abstracts- Precious Metals '15 and Nickel Processing '15

Abstracts are now invited for two of MEI's small specialised conferences, which will run back to back in May next year. As with all MEI Conferences, papers accepted for presentation will be published in a Proceedings flash drive, available at the conference, and then authors will be invited to submit edited papers to Elsevier Science after the event for peer-review and publication in a special issue of Minerals Engineering. Both conferences are certified for Continuous Professional Development.
May is a great time to be in Cornwall, so plan ahead and aim to spend some time exploring this beautiful area of the world.

Precious Metals '15 will deal with all aspects of the processing of gold and PGM ores, such as flotation, bio and hydrometallurgy and the associated environmental issues. Prof. Jacques Eksteen of Curtin University, Australia, will present the keynote lecture "Innovations in the processing of difficult and low grade gold ores".
The aim of Nickel Processing '15 is to bring together researchers and plant operators, to discuss all aspects of the physical and chemical processing of nickel ores, copper-nickel ores and laterites, and nickel concentrates, including:
• Froth Flotation and other beneficiation methods
• Bio and Hydrometallurgy
• Pyrometallurgy
• Environmental aspects of nickel processing and smelting
The keynote lecture "The future of nickel production - the outlook for nickel sulphide and laterite resource development" will be given by Dr. Andrew Mitchell, Principal Nickel Analyst with Wood Mackenzie, UK.

If you would like to present a paper at either of these meetings, please submit your short abstract by the end of November of this year. If your company is interested in exposure via sponsorship, details for Precious Metals '15 can be found here, and here for Nickel Processing '15.
