Finally, a complete and up-to-date reference on minerals processing plant design, process control, and operations. In October 2002, SME hosted the Mineral Processing Plant Design, Control and Practice Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. Including 138 papers, the resulting proceedings are an indispensable industry resource that will have a global impact on mining, minerals processing, and metallurgy for years to come.
These long-anticipated proceedings cover all aspects of plant designfrom concept to pilot plant to full-scale production. In addition to valuable guidance on overall project management, papers address the design, optimization, and control of all related processes. It's the most current thinking on minerals processing from the mining industry's leading engineers, consultants, and operators.
It's a new standard text for university-level instruction and a valuable guidebook for operators considering new construction, renovations, or expansions. Most of all, it's a practical, quick reference for engineers, consultants, suppliers, manufacturers, or anyone involved in the design or operation of a minerals processing plant.
