Book Description
The book is subtitled Proceedings of the Jan D. Miller Symposium which was held in Salt Lake City in February 2005. It contains 28 papers by 72 authors from USA, Australia, South Africa, China, Poland, Canada, and Chile. The papers are mainly from Millerís former students, former professors, and his many friends and colleagues. They reflect his areas of expertise which are principally the theory and practice of mineral beneficiation and hydrometallurgy. Among these one may mention papers on the fundamental aspects of cyanidation and other leaching agents, electrowinning, flotation collectors, gas-liquid interface, adsorption, mathematical modeling of leaching, air sparged, hydrocyclone, grinding, and coal technology.

The book is well produced and the papers are of great interest to any one working in mineral processing and hydrometallurgy. They papers combine theory and practice and are well documented by literature citation. Only a subject Index is missing. One paper has the abbreviation FTIR in the title and nowhere in the text one can find out what this abbreviation stands for. The level of the papers is quite high with impressive mathematics. The book will certainly be used by researchers and professionals for many decades to come. The editors are from the university of Utah, Montana, South Dakota, and Michigan. Credit should also be given to SME for its valuable publications policy.
