Ninth Mill Operators' Conference

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2007

That the Mill Operators’ Conference series has reached its ninth innings is a testament to the regard with which it is held by mineral processing operators around Australia and overseas. It has developed over the years by separating itself from other more formal forums used to present the latest research papers. While such forums play an important role in our industry, the Mill Operators ’Conference has tended to lean as much, if not more, toward practical experiences and learnings in operating plants as it does to purely academic research.

The mineral processing industry has the opportunity to improve on two fronts; by continuing to improve throughput and metal production from current best practice, or by looking to improve efficiencies, and minimise the trade-off. Whether this is done through research leading to new or improved technology, or simply through showing how we can do things that we have done for a long time smarter, more safely or more efficiently doesn’t matter; the result is positive for the operating sites in both cases.

It is hoped that in the selection of papers compiled in this volume, you may find at least one idea that can be taken back or developed further on to improve your organisation’s business.
