The NV MPD’s purpose is to provide technical development of mineral processing professionals and to promote advances in methods and techniques for process improvements, cost reductions and project development. In addition, the meeting will serve to raise funds for educational priorities, such as student scholarships, which will help to develop future professionals for our industry. Our mission will be accomplished through an annual meeting of high technical and professional quality. Our meeting format is similar to that of the Colorado MPD and the CMP meetings, which we feel is an excellent format for sharing information and networking.

The Nevada MPD Subsection is composed of experienced people from all disciplines of the industry.
