Lead-Zinc 2010 is the fifth decennial symposium by the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) that is devoted to the theory and practice of the extractive metallurgy of Lead and Zinc. This TMS Fall Extraction & Process Metallurgy Meeting is held in conjunction with the 2010 Conference of Metallurgists, the premier annual event of the Metallurgical Society of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (MetSoc) from October 3 to 6, 2010 in Vancouver, British Columbia

Topics to be discussed at the symposium include:

  • Global factors affecting the production of zinc and lead including the economic aspects of the industries, product development and marketing endeavors, and environmental and health issues
  • Surveys of existing smelters and refineries for primary and secondary lead and zinc production
  • Zinc production technology (roast-leach-electrowinning route including iron control, pyrometallurgical processes, ISP, slag fuming, Waelz furnace
  • TBRC and new technologies including direct concentrate leaching and smelting, pyrorefining and oxide ore processing)
  • Lead production technology (pyrometallurgical processes such as the ISP, blast furnace, QSL, KIVCET, SKS and TSL, as well as electrorefining, slag fuming and new processes)
  • Product applications and marketing (galvanization of steel, chemicals, ZnO and batteries)
  • Environmental issues, Recycling technologies and product life cycle concerns (e.g. electric arc furnace dust treatment and direct de-zincing)
  • Fundamental research and basic studies related to new Pb and Zn processes and to the understanding and basic theories of Pb and Zn processing.
