Hi-Tech Metals '18 — Developments in the Processing of the "Hi-Tech" Metals
22 Nov 2018 - 23 Nov 2018 • Cape Town, South Africa
Less than half a century ago the rare earth elements were classed as minor metals - who had even heard of neodymium, now essential in the production of powerful rare earth permanent magnets, used in wind turbines and many other applications? Lithium was essentially a curiosity, the third element in the Periodic Table, and the lightest metal. Now, of course it is in high demand for light, powerful batteries, and the increasing prevalence of electric cars will increase the demand for this once minor metal. The rare earths and lithium are primary mined, but some of the once minor metals, such as gallium, germanium and indium, which are essential for our modern way of life, are by-products of base metal mining. The importance of all these metals cannot be overestimated and Developments in the Processing of the Hi-Tech Metals will be MEI's first international conference dealing with the mineral processing and extractive metallurgy of these metals, and the environmental problems that are often associated with their extraction.

Computational Modelling '19 — 7th International Computational Modelling Symposium
29 Apr 2019 - 30 Apr 2019 • Cape Town, South Africa
The aim of this conference is to bring together both users and developers of computational modelling from academia and industry to share their knowledge and expertise. This conference is aimed at the full spectrum of people involved in computational modelling in minerals processing and materials handling, from model development, validation and all the way through to application. The specific areas include: Model development and computational techniques; Modelling of minerals processing and materials handling unit operations; Optimisation of plant and circuit operation and design; Experimental validation including novel experimental techniques.

Although there is much current emphasis on the chemical methods of mineral separation – flotation, hydrometallurgy, and bioleaching, the physical separation methods are ubiquitous, and there is no mining operation in the world which does not make use of the density differences between solids and liquids. Whether it be gravity concentration, classification or dewatering, the principles of separation are essentially the same and this, the 5th Physical Separation conference, 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.; Papers dealing with magnetic separation, and electronic sorting, often utilised in conjunction with gravity concentration, are also welcome; 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.
