This, the 5th International Symposium on Process Mineralogy (Process Mineralogy '18), is organised by MEI in consultation with Dr Megan Becker and is sponsored by ZEISS, Bruker and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Media sponsors are International Mining.



Developing from MEIís previous conferences on Process Mineralogy, Applied Mineralogy and Automated Mineralogy, Process Mineralogy í18 will deal with the following topics:

  • Quantitative mineralogy, including both X-ray and Electron Beam Techniques
  • Geometallurgy
  • Ore characterisation
  • Mineral Liberation and Textural Analysis
  • Application of process mineralogy on site
  • Sampling and Statistics
  • Advanced Process Control

Papers will be published as an unrefereed Proceedings on a USB Memory Stick, and selected papers will be published, after peer-review, in a special Process Mineralogy issue of Minerals Engineering journal.




Process Mineralogy '18 is organised by Minerals Engineering International (MEI) in consultation with Dr. Megan Becker.

Dr Megan Becker is a Senior Research Officer leading the process mineralogy initiative in the Centre for Minerals Research in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cape Town. She has a background in geology (BSc Hons, MSc - University of Cape Town) and a PhD in process mineralogy from the University of Pretoria (2009). Her research interests focus on understanding both the effect mineralogy has on the beneficiation process and the effect of the beneficiation process on the mineralogy, and how one can best use mineralogy and geometallurgy information. She has a keen interest in teaching mineralogy and in mineralogical analysis techniques, and currently manages the QEMSCAN facility in the CMR. She has supervised close to 20 postgraduate students and has over 50 peer reviewed publications in international journals and conference proceedings in the area of minerals beneficiation (including comminution, flotation, hydrometallurgy and environmental aspects such as acid rock drainage).
