Conference Proceedings
Published in 2017

The Eighth World Conference on Sampling and Blending (WCSB8), held 9–11 May, in Perth, Western Australia was the latest in the very successful conference series held in Denmark (WCSB1), Australia (WCSB2), Brazil (WCSB3), South Africa (WCSB4), Chile (WCSB5), Peru (WCSB6) and France (WCSB7). The conference brought together all involved in sampling and blending and papers were sought over an extended range of areas. These included: sampling theory, geostatistics, sampling and blending mineral commodities, quality control and metallurgical accounting, sampling and quality control in the pharmaceutical and food industries, sampling of feed, agricultural and biomass products, sampling of wastes and recyclable materials, environmental sampling and monitoring, standards development, new equipment, future technologies and case studies.
