Wolf Minerals will have a major involvement with Physical Separation '19

We are pleased to announce that Wolf Minerals is to sponsor an MEI Conference for the first time, and will have a major involvement in next year's Physical Separation '19 in Falmouth.
Wolf Minerals operates the Drakelands tungsten and tin mine at Hemerdon, bordering Dartmoor in Devon, and is one of the Western world's largest tungsten and tin resources. It officially opened three years ago (posting of 17th September 2015).
One of Wolf's senior metallurgists will be giving a presentation at the conference on the operation of the processing plant, which, due to the high density of wolframite and the by-product cassiterite, is dominated by gravity concentration, DMS cyclones, spirals and shaking tables (provided by conference sponsor Holman-Wilfley) producing a combined W-Sn concentrate, from which arsenopyrite is removed by froth flotation.
Wolf is kindly organising an optional tour for delegates on the morning of Saturday June 15th, which will include transport to and from Falmouth, refreshments and lunch.  Numbers will need to be capped at 30 and the tour will be approximately four hours in length, so if you would like to take part you must register your intent as soon as possible. There is no charge for this visit, nor for the optional tour to the 19th century Wheal Peevor mining trail on the Friday afternoon.

  1. Unfortunately only 9 days after this blog post Wolf Minerals (UK) went into administration and Drakelands Mine closed, so the promised mine tour will not take place
