Hydrometallurgy Conference 2016

‘Sustainable Hydrometallurgical Extraction of Metals’

31 July 2016 - Workshop | 1 - 3 August 2016 Conference| Belmont Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town

Metals play a significant role in industrialisation and technological advancements. Do you ever wonder then what life would be like without metal resources?

The depletion of natural rich ore deposits coupled with a fall in grade, a decline in productivity, rising operational and energy costs, concerns on sustainability and environmental impact of mining and metal related activities have been affecting the mining and metals industry in the recent past. Unless innovative methods that look at the smart use and recovery of metals from metal resources are developed, the world will be faced by a metal supply risk that will impact on future economic growth and technological development.

The SAIMM Hydrometallurgy Conference, 2016, will bring together internationally and locally recognized experts, industries, R&D establishments, academia as well as students to explore how future metal demands can be met through modern hydrometallurgical technologies that can:
☛ Assist in sustainable metal extraction
☛ Lower energy costs
☛ Minimise the impact on the environment
