The Hi-Tech Metals ’18 conference, to be held in Cape Town from 22-23 November, is MEI’s first international conference on developments in the processing of high tech metals.
It’s less than half a century ago that the rare earth elements were classed as minor metals, however these metals are now considered essential ingredients for technology development and economic prosperity.
The conference organiser is now calling for abstracts on topics related to mineral processing and extractive metallurgy of these metals from primary and secondary resources, including approaches to environmental issues that may arise during these processes.
All papers must be written in English, and short abstracts of no more than 150 wordsshould be emailed to Dr Barry Wills in Rich Text Format (.rtf).
Dr Wills said this was an ideal opportunity for delegates to present work to an international audience and have their paper published in Minerals Engineering, a refereed journal of high repute.
