This, the 2nd International Symposium on Process Mineralogy (Process Mineralogy '12), was organised by Minerals Engineering International in consultation with Dr Megan Becker and is sponsored by FEI, Anglo American Technical Solutions - Research, FLSmidth, Bruker AXS, SGS, Oxford Instruments, PANalytical, Tescan & Carl Zeiss.
Papers will be published as an unrefereed Proceedings on CD-ROM, and selected papers will be published, after peer-review, in a special Process Mineralogy issue of Minerals Engineering journal.
Dr. Baum has 34 years of experience as a process mineralogist in the mining industry. He has worked for Hazen Research, Texasgulf, St.Joe Minerals Corporation, and Pittsburgh Mineral & Environmental Technology. From 1999 to 2011 he established and managed state-of-the-art Material Characterization Labs at the Technology Center of Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold and its predecessor Phelps Dodge Mining Company including robotics lab modules for mineralogy and chemical analyses. In 2011, he joined FLSmidth as Director – Ore Characterization in Salt Lake City/Utah focusing on Process Mineralogy for minerals engineering metallurgical services and the expanded use of lab automation in mining.
Jan Miller is the Department Chair and Ivor Thomas Distinguished Professor of Metallurgical Engineering, College of Mines and Earth Sciences, University of Utah. He received his B.S. degree, graduating with distinction, from the Pennsylvania State University. His graduate degrees (M.S. and Ph.D.) in Metallurgical Engineering were earned at the Colorado School of Mines. He is the recipient of numerous awards based on research contributions in mineral processing/hydrometallurgy and has served on the faculty at the University of Utah for 43 years. Professor Miller is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Distinguished Member of SME.
In 2007 he received an Honorary Ph.D. degree, Doctor Honoris Causa, from the University of Pretoria in South Africa and an Honorary Professorial Appointment at Central South University, Changsha, China. More recently, in May 2010, Dr. Miller was awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree, Doctor Honoris Causa, from Gdansk University of Technology, Gdansk, Poland. In 2011 he received Honorary Professorial Appointments at the Institute for Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China and the Kunming University of Science and Technology, Kunming, China.
