"Expanding the horizon"

16–17 August 2016—Conference | 18 August 2016—Technical Visit
Sun City, South Africa

The series of heavy minerals conferences has traditionally focused on the industries associated with ilmenite, rutile and zircon. There are many other economic minerals which have specific gravities such that they may also be classed as ‘heavy minerals’.

The physical and chemical properties of these other minerals results in them being processed by similar technologies and sharing similar markets to the more traditional heavy minerals. In this conference we continue to examine the mining, processing and usage of the traditional heavy minerals but also ‘expand our horizons’ to include other valuable minerals.
