Process Mineralogy Book Launch

29 Mar 2017 - 10:00

Last week saw the Cape Town celebrations of the launch of Process Mineralogy - the latest in the JKMRC Monograph Series in Mining and Mineral Processing. Dr Megan Becker of the CMR, and Drs Elaine Wightman and Cathy Evans of the SMI-JKMRC are the Editors of this seminal text. Process Mineralogy is the culmination of many months of work, by a team of over 50 contributors. The Monograph covers the various tools and techniques used in process mineralogy studies, and their application illustrated in a series of case studies spanning different commodities, unit processes and locations around the world.

Following its official launch at the SMI-JKMRC in Brisbane earlier this month, the Cape Town celebrations marked the gathering of the three editors at the MEI Process Mineralogy 17 conference at the Vineyard Hotel (20-22 March), and then at UCT later that week. Prof Dee Bradshaw (UCT Minerals to Metals Initiative), who played a key role in the early stages of the book during her time at the SMI-JKMRC, opened the UCT celebration on 23rd March. Several of the contributors (including the CMR’s Prof Aubrey Mainza), attended the UCT event, which culminated in an impromptu signing session of their copies of the Monograph!  

The Monograph is available for purchase through the SMI-JKMRC website
