A final call for abstracts for Biomining '21

Biomining '21, originally scheduled to be held in Falmouth, will now be held as a virtual event from June 7th to 8th. This, MEI's 10th International Symposium on Biomining, is the postponed Biomining '20, which was affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. It is organised by MEI with Prof. Sue Harrison and Dr. Chris Bryan and is sponsored by AFX Mixing & Pumping Technologies and Newmont. Media sponsor is International Mining, and Industry Associates are the Cornwall Mining Alliance and the Critical Minerals Association.

We are pleased to advise that the online website is now live, and you can submit your abstracts to this and register for the event. The deadline for abstract submission is the end of March.

We have two well known biohydrometallurgy experts presenting keynote lectures. Dr. Anna Kaksonen, of CSIRO, Australia, will present "Environmental applications of biotechnology in mining" and Dr. Chris Bryan, of BRGM, France "Bridging the gaps in biomining research and application".

All presenters will be invited to submit papers after the conference. These will be peer-reviewed and, if accepted, published immediately in the first available regular issue of Minerals Engineering, and included in the Virtual Special Issue of the conference on ScienceDirect. This is an ideal opportunity to present your work to an international audience and have your paper published in a refereed journal of high repute, the conference itself providing initial peer-review via discussion.

The latest updates are at #Biomining21.
