Chile is one of the leading nations in the mining and smelting of non-ferrous metals such as copper and molybdenum. Japan is a major importer of non-ferrous ores from Chile, and has been making significant investments in mine development. Currently, with the development and construction of numerous mines and smelters in Chile in progress, over a hundred Japanese staff and a thousand workers are stationed there. Evidently, this partnership between Chile and Japan is important for industries, academia, and government offices of both countries. The aim of this workshop is to promote information exchange and interactions among engineers and researchers from two countries through lectures on mining, processing, smelting, and environmental technologies for processing non-ferrous metals. Furthermore, this exchange is intended to go beyond the boundaries of industry, academia, and government, and explore the future direction of development in industrial technologies and related academic pursuits.
