International Symposium on Lead and Zinc Processing
Durban, South Africa, 25-29 February 2008
International symposia on lead and zinc have been held for over three decades. The 2008 event in Durban continues in this tradition.
This international forum will provide an opportunity for the lead and zinc
processing industries to exchange information about current and future
processing technologies for primary and secondary lead and zinc, as well
as emerging technologies for both metals. The planned conference will discuss
the way forward for our industry.
Topics for the technical sessions could include the following subject areas:
The conference will take place on the cruise ship Melody, travelling between Durban and Bazaruto Island.
The conference is planned to run from 25-29 February 2008, with some short courses planned for the Saturday preceding the five-day conference. Post-conference plant visits will be arranged for those interested. These could include destinations such as Zincor and Fry's Metals in South Africa, and Skorpion Zinc and Rosh Pinah in Namibia.
Of significance to South African participants who are registered professional engineers, is the fact that this conference will provide points towards the Continuing Professional Development that is required (as of 1 January 2006) to maintain registration with the Engineering Council of South Africa.
The conference is organized by the SAIMM, and is co-sponsored by international organizations, such as TMS, GDMB, CIM Metsoc, and MMIJ.
