Inaugural Address

Patil, Shivraj V (1985) Inaugural Address. In: Proceedings of National Seminar on Mineral Processing and IX Annual Technical Convention of the Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, 11th & 12th March 1985, National Metallurgical Laboratory(CSIR) Jamshedpur.



A vast country like India with a vigorous tempo of industrial advancement and modernisation,naturally, has an enormous demand for minerals and metals. Mineral resources being non-replenishable wasting assets, their optimum use through conservation requires their bene-ficiation. As the current high grade ore reserves go on depleting year by year, it becomes imperative under the constant pressure of expanding industrial demands, to utilise continuously lower grades of ores and minerals after beneficiating them through "processing" to make them suitable for subsequent use. Quite a few R & D instit-utions, including NML, pioneered this cause of Indian industrial revolution by initiating mineral beneficiation research to provide invaluable service to the various organisations in private and public sectors like HSL, HCL, HZL, TISCO, NMDC, CMPDI, GMDC, MMC, BSMDC, RSIMDC, PPCL etc. for economic exploitation of Indian ores and minerals.
