The paper discusses new developments in bulk handling, particularly as applied to mining, metal processing and energy. It also relates to the trends in minerals processing such as crushing and grinding, classification, concentration, agglomeration, and chemical processing. In addition, the latest developments in storage, transfer and blending are reviewed in terms of systems and components. An extensive survey of advances in minerals transportation and haulage, which constitute a major cost component, is also included. Socioeconomical and environmental problems, as well as the solutions by innovations and new concepts for the future, are discussed.
