MetPlant 2019 will continue to build on the tradition of promoting and imparting knowledge pertaining to world’s best practice in Metallurgical Plant Design and Operation.

In 2019 the conference will be held in a modern, new venue – the Crown at Burswood.

Since 2002, this conference has brought together a broad range of disciplines from across the minerals industry involved in the ‘whole of life’ planning and operation, (from design and maintenance engineers, operations managers, planning engineers, metallurgists and process engineers, environmental specialists, equipment suppliers, service providers and consultants) to discuss and review developments in metallurgical plant design and the optimisation of operations.

With a diverse conference program across a range of processes and commodities, case studies and discussion of world’s best practice in plant design, plant operations, care and maintenance, and closure strategies are welcome.

Topics covered will include:

Geometallurgy, mineral processing, hydrometallurgy, biometallurgy and pyrometallurgy
Design of metallurgical plants – greenfield, brownfield and expansions
Feasibility studies, project management
Process and equipment selection
Construction and commissioning
Whole of life planning and operations
Control and instrumentation
Management strategies
Comminution – SAG and HPGR
Water, emissions and tailings management
Lithium processing
Maintenance and optimisation
Plant control and energy efficiency
Solid-liquid separation
Case studies of optimised operations
