Why attend ALTA conferences?

“I was delighted when Alan Taylor invited me to present a paper to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Commissioning of the Anaconda, Bulong and Cawse HPAL Projects. Alan said that the story had to be told while the original ground breakers are still around to tell it. My previous attendance was at ALTA 1997 when we were about 80% complete with Bulong detailed engineering and I was only able to attend the social events. This time, I was able to attend all of the technical presentations. In addition to this valuable learning experience, was the ability to meet up and talk face to face with most of the players in the very limited circle of HPAL specialists from around the world. No other conference offers this unique opportunity. I sincerely hope that I will be able to attend the landmark 25th Anniversary of the ALTA Conferences.”
Paul Tucker, Manager of Engineering, Bantrel (Canada)
