Advanced Flotation Techniques Comes to Vancouver

We’re excited for our first Canadian run of Dr. Marek Pawlik’s short course, Advanced Flotation Techniques, which made its debut last May, in Lima. The course material is useful for plant managers, operation managers, metallurgists, engineers, processing managers, as well as others. Dr. Pawlik will provide a review of the current state of the fundamentals and technology of froth flotation and then delve into the science (surface chemistry) of flotation, flotation technology, and flotation practice. This 2-day course will be held in Vancouver, BC, November
