LARCODEMS – A History of Publications

LARCODEMS – A History of Publications

As a result of the relaunch of the website, we are now in a position to bring you a history of how the LARCODEMS has been assessed and evaluated in various mineral processing fields. There have been many other assessments and evaluations over the years but here is a list of publications available on the internet, with links, to evidence the efficiency of our technology.

The most recent of these publications was shown in a recent JMC Website news item (here) and is the top of the list.

Please browse at your leisure and contact us if you would like further information.
