Many modern ore deposits are fine-grained and complex, requiring ultrafine grinding.

For some ores, adequate liberation of values is obtained only after grinding to sizes less than 20 microns, and sometimes much less.

Grinding to sizes as fine as this is inefficient and uneconomic in ball mills, and mining companies are now having to assess alternative technology, such as stirred milling.

Such technology has been in use for some time in other industries, such as chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and the aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists and engineers from different disciplines, to discuss common aims and problems.

Papers are invited, therefore, not only from the minerals industry, but also from any industry employing ultrafine grinding methods.
