The Conference Chair is Claudia Garrido, Plant Manager, El Teniente Division, Codelco, Chile.

Procemin-Geomet 2019 offers an excellent opportunity for professionals related to the mineral processing and geometallurgy areas to exchange knowledge, experiences, work methods, tools and technological advances in a collaborative multidisciplinary work environment.

We wish to celebrate this 15th Anniversary in a very special way, bringing together all the past-presidents of the past versions of Procemin, among other surprises to celebrate with great energy this important milestone. This new version of Procemin-Geomet is expected to gather more than 450 professionals worldwide; attached you will find the conference call.
