The latest research and developments in sampling and blending for the mining industry will be presented at the WCSB6 in Peru.
The technical program of the international congress includes 40 presentations from 14 countries.
As the Peruvian poet César Vallejo once said, "Brothers, there is so much to do". With that being said, I am very pleased to welcome you to the 6th World Conference on Sampling and Blending - WCSB6.
The history of this event is not a short one. It has previously been held in Copenhagen (2004), Australia (2005), Brazil (2007), South Africa (2009) and Chile (2011) and this year it will be held in Lima, the capital of Peru.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome both national and international experts, the organisations that make this event possible, and anybody who would like to participate and join us at this World Conference.
This is a true platform to deal with Sampling and Blending themes in different areas related to mining engineering, geology, metallurgy, environmental applications, agriculture, farming, food industry, fishery etc.
Quality and innovation are our driving forces; creating conditions to promote the participation of young university students as well as top-notch professors and professionals from around the world. This conference will give everyone involved the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences in order to overcome barriers and advance in this competitive market.
We look forward to seeing you in November 2013.
Alfredo Marín, WCSB6 Chair
