Procemin 2012 gathers more than 400 participants

More than 65 papers from 13 countries were presented at the ninth version of the most important conferences in region on the topic of mineral processing.

The 9th International Conference on Mineral Processing, Procemin 2012, established its leadership in Latin America after gathering 400 participants in Santiago, whom for three days attended technical sessions with a high-level focus on new developments and practices in the area of mineral processing.

This was the first time Procemin had three days of parallel technical sessions due to the large number of papers received. Thirteen countries were represented among the more than 65 papers included in the technical program which included seven plenary sessions and two panel discussions on modelling in flotation and eco efficiency in comminution.

Procemin 2012 was chaired by Marcelo Bustos, Process Manager at Teck Chile and was organised by Gecamin and the Mining Engineering Department of the Universidad de Chile. Among the featured plenary speakers were Hugo Herrera from Teck Carmen de Andacollo, Chile; Carlos Lara from Servicios Industriales Peñoles; Gideon Chitombo from WH Bryan Mining & Geology Research Centre, SMI, Australia; Fernando Parra from CAP Minería, Chile; Claudio García from Sierra Gorda SCM, Chile; Bob Drabik y Fernando Torres from Xstrata Copper, Chile;  and Pablo Pastene from Fundación Chile.

One of the conference highlights was the announcement of the arrival of the XXVII International Mineral Processing Congress, IMPC 2014, the largest conference worldwide in the area of mineral processing that will be co-organised by the Universidad de Chile, the Universidad Federico Santa María, and Gecamin. The IMPC congress in 2014 hopes to gather more than a thousand people from all around the world and will replace Procemin 2014.

In 2013 Procemin will celebrate its tenth anniversary. Currently, Procemin 2013 is in the stage of abstract submission until 13 March. Interested authors may submit an abstract of 200-300 words in English to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
