Urbanisation in most of Africa is moving at a very fast pace, especially south of the Sahara. Infrastructure and housing provisions, water & waste management, energy & other utilities supply shortages, traffic congestion, environmental health problems, limited green spaces, extreme poverty, social security and public safety problems place many burdens on people. With a consistent influx of people into African cities, there is a need for a central focus on sustainability, urban planning, regeneration, slum rehabilitation and low-income housing provision.
This Urban & Housing Development large scale event will be a one-stop platform that will encapsulate cutting-edge issues, strategic solutions, investment strategies and pertinent case studies in urban planning, infrastructure and housing development.

Primary zinc production is complicated by the fact that sphalerite is usually associated with economic amounts of lead and copper minerals, and is often contained in a gangue high in pyrite. The complex intergrowths often mean that very fine grinding is required, followed by selective flotation.
Some of the most important developments which have taken place in minerals engineering in recent years have involved the treatment of these ores and in the subsequent extraction of zinc from concentrates.Read more
