Conference Proceedings
Published in 2016

Following on from the highly successful Townsville event, which attracted nearly 400 industry professionals, the 13th AusIMM Mill Operators' Conference was held in Perth, Western Australia from 10–12 October. Inaugurated in Mt Isa in 1978, this biennial conference aimed to promote the sharing of knowledge in operating practices for mineral processing plants, including extractive metallurgy, process control and environmental issues. With the theme 'Measure, Manage, Improve' the conference provided the opportunity for plant operators, metallurgists, engineers and operational staff to learn, share and network with others in the minerals industry.
