Flotation ‘09 – Programme now available

It is 103 years since froth flotation was patented, and it is often said to be the 20th century’s most important technological development. It is still the most intensively researched area of mineral processing, as is evidenced by the response to the call for papers for Flotation ‘09, MEI’s 3rd flotation conference, which will be held in Cape Town on 09.-12.11.2009. So far 10 major sponsors have weighed in with their support and a high-calibre international technical programme for the 4-days has now been published. The first two days will be devoted to fundamental physics and chemistry, with Prof. Cyril O’Connor, Chairman of the IMPC, and Dean of Engineering at University of Cape Town, presenting a keynote lecture: The effect of the multiple interactions between reagents and mineral particles on flotation performance – a review. The final two days will deal with applications and plant practice, with Prof. Graeme Jameson, Laureate Professor at the University of Newcastle, Australia, presenting the keynote: New directions in flotation machine design. Registration forms are now available on the conference website and it is not too late to submit an abstract. Final papers will be published in a special froth flotation issue of Minerals Engineering.
