Whether it be gravity concentration, classification or dewatering, the principles of separation are essentially the same and this, the 3rd 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.
Cornwall, the â€œbirthplace of modern miningâ€, is an appropriate place to hold such an event, as this was the first place in the world where physical separation methods were practiced on a large scale, and the programme will include a visit to the historic Camborne-Redruth copper and tin mining district, where ruins of 19th century â€˜dressing floorsâ€™ can be explored.
