No big surprises at last night's Cornish Mining sundowner, attended by around 20 regulars on a warm evening at Falmouth's Chain Locker.
The latest mining news from Cornwall is that Cornish Lithium Ltd, which has exploration rights for lithium and other battery metals across a large area of Cornwall, has, in collaboration with consultancy company Wardell Armstrong and the Natural History
I first met Prof. Janusz Laskowki at the 1988 IMPC in Stockholm, and have caught up with him at every IMPC, apart from Moscow, since then, as well as occasional SMEs, and at MEI’s flotation conferences; he was a keynote speaker at Flotation ’15 in Cape Town.
Janusz is Professor Emeritus of mineral processing at the University of British Columbia, Canada, and obtained all his degrees,
