SAG Conference 2019 - Home

The 7th International Conference on Semi-Autogenous and High Pressure Grinding Technology will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on September 22th to September 26th, 2019.

This Operator's Conference follows previous ones held in 1989, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2015.

The SAG Conference brings together all those engaged in the field of autogenous, semi-autogenous and HPGR grinding in the industrial and metalliferous mineral industries.

A single presentation-room format and lively round table discussions will be held to stimulate interaction between registrants and experts in topical areas.

CALL FOR PAPERS is now open. Submit your abstract on the website at this link and fill in your email address in the "Submit a paper" box to get started. Abstract submission will be open until October, 2018.

The SAG Conference includes an exhibition of sponsoring companies and organizations. Contact for information on reserving a booth.

SAG Conference 2019 is organized by the SAG Conference Foundation, a Canadian registered non-profit organization. Our international committee of volunteers join forces to insure an interesting and comprehensive event is made available to the industry.
