MEI Online: MEI Conferences: Gravity '99


This two day international Minerals Engineering Symposium was held at the Renaissance Hotel, in the centre of Amsterdam.
Sponsored by Knelson Concentrators and Wilfley UK Ltd, the symposium was attended by 30 high profile gravity separation specialists from 12 countries, representing Australia, Africa, Asia, North America and Europe.

Peter Davies explains the S-W Minerals Spiral
The keynote lecture was presented by Richard Burt of Cabot Mineral Development, Canada, who reviewed the role of gravity concentration in modern mineral processing plants. This was followed by 18 papers dealing with Plant Practice, Classification and Dewatering, Gravity Concentrators and Optimisation and Control, describing the utilisation of gravity techniques not only in mainstream mineral processing, but also in diverse areas such as soil remediation and the recovery of gold from jewellery waste.
