DESPITE recently relaxing regulations restricting the exports of some raw minerals, Indonesia’s government is focused on development of downstream processing and value adding to the nation’s mineral resources. This focus and the changed regulations make the Regional Technical Conference (RTC) Mineral Processing 2017 event a must for those interested in benefiting from value adding opportunities.

The event on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at Dharmawangsa Hotel in Jakarta will be the latest in the RTC series organised by Mining Media International, publishers of The ASIA Miner magazine and online news service. There will also be a Djakarta Mining Club meeting in the evening following the conference.

Processing is an important aspect for the entire mining industry, particularly as it struggles to overcome the difficult downtime when optimisation and greater productivity is not just necessary but vital.

RTC Mineral Processing 2017 will enable participants to learn about mineral processing technologies and services aimed at improving mining operations. It will bring together government, decision makers, equipment and technology providers to facilitate interactive learning and business opportunities.

The conference will highlight regulatory changes, domestic and overseas processed mineral demand and supply forecasts, strategic moves by IUP holders to secure financing, updated smelting and processing technologies as well as infrastructure challenges in building smelters.

Among the topics it is likely to examine are concentration plant operation and optimisation; modelling of comminution processes; blasting, pre-sorting and crushing; grinding and classification; water management; tailings and process improvement; flotation technology; and environmental, recycling and social responsibility.

It is imperative that companies with the technologies and expertise attend and participate while for business interested in getting their ‘foot in the door’ to a developing industry, this is your moment to shine.

Conference organisers are seeking presenters who can contribute to the development and growth of mineral processing in Indonesia. They welcome presentation submissions for the event along with sponsorship proposals.

Papers in the following categories are sought: Case studies of current processing operations in Indonesia; innovative processing technologies; financing strategies for processing; equipment financing; investing in processing infrastructure; feeders, crushers and ball mills; separators, densifiers and driers; dewatering, combustion and maintenance; training, equipment and service opportunities in mineral processing; smelting, including building, energy required, air quality, environmental effects, water and water quality, transport and uses.
