Phosphates and related resources: deposition, exploration, extraction and beneficiation

Phosphates and related resources: deposition, exploration, extraction and beneficiation

This session aims to bring together researchers and PhD students, from both academia and industry, to share current knowledge of phosphate deposits and their formation, innovative methods of exploration and exploitation, and state-of-the-art beneficiation techniques. Contributions will cover a range of topics such as, for instance,

  • The relationships between phosphatogenesis and chemical speciation of minor and trace elements,
  • Integrated methods of hydro-geophysical, logging, and core-scanning exploration,
  • Innovative extraction methods for buried deposits,
  • And mineralurgical techniques for beneficiation of low-grade phosphate deposits.

The session will include oral and poster sessions as well as keynote speakers.
