@from: @qu: "The book should be of great use to mineral processing engineers, metallurgists, process mineralogists, mining engineers, environmental engineers, consultants, plant managers, and students. It is certain that it will be the source book for those working in the field for decades to come. I consider this is the Book of the Year!" @source:
