Physical Separation '22 and IntegratedMinPro '22: First call for abstracts

Physical Separation '22 and Integration, Optimisation & Design of Mineral Processing Circuits (IntegratedMinPro '22) were scheduled to run back to back in Falmouth next June, but as it is evident that international travel will not be possible for many countries by then, the conferences are now online.

Physical Separation '22 will now be online from May 9-11 2022.  This will be MEI's 7th Physical Separation conference and will bring together researchers and operators who have common interests in:

  • Gravity concentration methods - single and multi-G separators and dense medium separation
  • Classification techniques - hydrocyclones, air classifiers etc.
  • Solid-Liquid Separation - thickeners, clarifiers etc.
  • Electronic Sorting
  • Magnetic and electrostatic separation
  • Microwave technology. There are many aspects of mineral processing where the use of microwaves has potential and papers dealing with the enhancement of physical processes by microwaves are encouraged.

Our Media Partners are International Mining and Imformed, and our Industry Advocates are the Coalition for Eco-Efficient Comminution (CEEC), the Cornwall Mining Alliance and the Critical Minerals Association.

There is now a first call for abstracts and sponsors. Short abstracts should be submitted via the online portal by the end of February.

IntegratedMinPro '22, a brand new MEI Conference will run from June 13-15 2022 and we thank our first sponsor, Promet101, Media Partner International Mining, and Industry Advocates Cornwall Mining Alliance and the Critical Minerals Association for their early support.

As the demand for resources continues to increase, and amidst growing challenges of processing complex ores while minimising energy and environmental impact, we are entering an exciting time for innovation in mineral processing. Innovation in individual unit operations is complemented by innovative approaches to the entire mineral processing flowsheet, from rearrangement of an existing circuit to a new approach for a greenfield development.

IntegratedMinPro '22 invites papers on new approaches to mineral processing circuits, whether through design, modelling, optimisation or operation. This includes integration of unit operations (e.g. comminution and flotation), novel flowsheets that incorporate new equipment and new approaches to optimising circuit design. We invite abstracts in these areas by the end of March. Sponsorship details can also be found on the website.

As with all MEI Conferences presenters will be invited to submit papers to Minerals Engineering for peer-review after the conference. These will be handled exclusively by me, the journal's Editor-in-Chief, and I will take into account discussion at the conference and effectively fast-track the reviewing process.

If your paper is accepted for publication after refereeing, it will be published immediately in the first available regular issue of Minerals Engineering, and included in the Virtual Special Issue of the conference on ScienceDirect.

We look forward to your active participation in these two important events next year.  Updates are at:
