An international conference attended by scientists and engineers from six of the world's leading natural producers of minerals and metals. The emphasis is on the application of measurements including problems and their solution, within the gold, platinum and diamond producing industries. There are also papers by researchers from the steel industry which provide a valuable insight into measurement application in metal processing.
