Scope of PIM '10

Although there are many operations worldwide, treating a wide range of industrial minerals, processing problems are often similar. The aim of this conference was therefore to bring together operators and scientists from apparently disparate fields, ranging from cement to potash processing and coal preparation, to discuss common problems encountered in comminution, classification, flotation, physical separation, dewatering and other areas.


Conference Proceedings

Papers have been published as an unrefereed Proceedings on CD-ROM, and selected papers will be published, after peer-review, in a special Processing of Industrial Minerals issue of Minerals Engineering journal.
