The Colorado Mineral Processing Division Subsection of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) had its first meeting in 1949 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The meeting is the longest running "annual" meeting in the history of the Broadmoor.
The intent and structure of the meeting has always been to provide a comfortable setting in which participants could attend technical sessions in a somewhat informal setting. The design of the program was such that it would attract people from a wide range of disciplines within the mining industry and foster camaraderie for all. Themes and topics of the meeting and technical papers are adjusted annually to be current with political, economical, environmental, operational or financial concerns within the industry, while staying within the general topic of "Mineral Processing."
The Executive Committee of the Colorado MPD is composed of an all volunteer group of experienced people from all disciplines of the industry who meet monthly to develop the program. We do this because we recognize the intrinsic value of this meeting. We welcome all attendees and look forward to providing a quality program each and every year.
