If you’re involved in the planning, design, operations, closure, and/or research aspects of heap leaching, you’ll need to consider attending the International Heap Leach Conference 2013.

The conference will take place September 22-25, 2013 in Vancouver, Canada. It is organized by InfoMine, in partnership with the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering and the Materials Engineering Department at the University of British Columbia.

This is a comprehensive conference that will bring a range of professionals together to present and discuss new research insights and share leading practices on heap leach projects.

The general themes of the conference are:

  • Ore Characterization / Metallurgical Testwork
  • Design and Construction
  • Operations and Metal Recovery
  • Closure and Post-closure
  • Technology Developments

How is Heap Leach 2013 different from other heap leach conferences? Many other conferences focus on specific scientific and engineering aspects of heap leaching or have heap leaching as a subtopic. This conference brings it all together so that a wide range of professionals can share their expertise and experience in the development, operation and closure of heap leach projects.
