Cover of the February 2012 issue of Process magazine

The February issue of Process magazine is out now.

Process

A free magazine containing the latest news on CSIRO's research in mineral processing and metal production.

  • 9 February 2012 | Updated 23 February 2012

The February 2012 issue of Process, will be the last. Our exciting new magazine, resourceful, will take its place.

resourceful will have a broadened scope that encompasses CSIRO's research across the entire minerals and metals value chain – from mineral exploration, to mining and processing, and metal production.

After 20 years, Process has come to an end. It will be replaced by our new magazine, resourceful.

In recognition of Process as CSIRO’s longstanding publication in mineral processing and metal production, the last issue is a compilation of the best articles from its 20 year history. It highlights the groundbreaking research that CSIRO has undertaken and continues to undertake in the minerals and metal production sector.

Past issues of Process will continue to be available online free of charge.
