STARKEY INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM on Sustainable Mineral Processing
This major symposium is in honor of the distinguished work and lifetime achievements of John H. Starkey. Mr. Starkey is a well-known figure for his strong impact on metallurgical process design including iron, base metals and gold processing. This work is especially well known in the area of autogenous and semi-autogenous grinding circuits and relating these to beneficiation. For the past 26 years he has dedicated himself to the development and application of new technologies to measure ore hardness and to calculate mill sizes for new grinding mills. He has based all of his development work on open technology and fundamental measurements. Since 1994, he has published over 25 papers detailing the development of new ore hardness measurement technologies, and the commercial results that have been achieved using SPI and SAGDesign testing.
