Booth Location: 23 (Thursday 23rd - Friday 24th May)
ALTA 2019 is a world-class annual metallurgical conference, now in its 24th year, and a leading platform for innovation. The event now includes dedicated day sessions for In Situ Recovery (ISR) and Lithium Processing in response to industry activity, with an expanded number of presentations (up to 15). We are pleased to partner with CSIRO Minerals for the ISR sessions and Curtin Gold Technology Group for Gold-PM. The Uranium-REE and ISR sessions, and Heap Leaching short course are organised in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The emphasis of the program is practical rather than academic, and the themes running through the conference are the various aspects of technology and project development.
“The sessions exceeded the highest expectations with pertinent and practical presentations and discussions, knowledgeable industry representatives and service providers with appropriate products."
Held over eight days in Perth, it comprises five technical conferences, three short courses, and a trade exhibition. It features highlyfocused programs, topical forums and key international speakers. An outstanding platform for exposing the latest worldwide developments in plant operations, process technology, new projects, testwork and scale-up, process modelling and control systems, application of mineralogy and geometallurgy, R&D, equipment, reagents, materials, tailings disposal and environmental alleviation.
