Inaugural Lunch ‘n’ Learn seminar series a huge success

Recognizing the need for mineral processing operations around Australia to work smarter, Haver & Boecker Australia held its inaugural Lunch ‘n’ Learn seminar series in November 2015.

The seminars aimed to bring our wealth of mineral processing experience to various industry stakeholders to facilitate innovation, best practice and project optimization.

Having now completed the series for 2015, we are pleased to report the program has been a huge success.

About Lunch ‘n’ Learn

A Lunch ‘n’ Learn seminar takes an informal and interactive workshop format. Each seminar is designed to exchange information and ideas, and to initiate collaborative discussions with stakeholders from the mining and mineral processing sectors such as mining companies, engineering consultancies and universities.

The objective is to inspire more innovative approaches to mineral processing to help operations work smarter - particularly in the current environment where efficiency and productivity is more important than ever.

The November seminars focused on screening technology and the latest industry trends, technology and best practice. The seminars were presented by Haver & Boecker’s in-house specialist Dr Rüdiger Heinrich, from our Haver & Boecker Mining division. Dr Rüdiger holds a doctorate in mining machinery and brings more than 30 years of mineral processing experience to the Lunch ‘n’ Learn table.

The seminars take place at a venue of the participants’ choice and Haver & Boecker provides a delicious lunch of the participants’ choosing!

Haver & Boecker hosted 2015 Lunch ‘n’ Learn seminars for a range of industry stakeholders from around the country, including:SNC-Lavalin inc., WorleyParsons, The University of Newcastle, The University of Queensland, Rio Tinto, BlueScope Steel, Alcoa.

“Dr Rüdiger Heinrich provided details of screening technologies, flowsheet configurations and engineering calculations to optimise these circuits.  This was helpful in extending the awareness and understanding of screening for the chemical and metallurgical undergraduate students and researchers that attended the seminar.”
The University of Queensland

“Participants appreciated the opportunity to learn from an industry expert and another “Lunch n’ Learn seminar is being planned for 2016.”
