2000 TMS Fall Extraction and Process Metallurgy Meeting: General Information

Combining Lead-Zinc 2000 and Recycling of Metals and Engineered Materials
October 22-25, 2000 · Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society's (TMS's) 2000 Fall Extraction and Process Metallurgy Meeting: New Technologies for the Next Millennium (Combining Lead-Zinc 2000 and Recycling of Metals and Engineered Materials), will be held at the Pittsburgh Hilton Hotel, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from October 22-25, 2000. The Pittsburgh Hilton Hotel is located in downtown Pittsburgh, across from historic Fort Pitt. It provides the ideal location for the TMS Fall Extraction and Process Metallurgy Meeting, which combines two of TMS's popular series meetings—Lead-Zinc 2000 and Recycling of Metals and Engineered Materials. The constituent symposia will coorganize sessions related to the recycling of lead and zinc.


Pittsburgh, a city that once entertained itself by working three shifts a day, has taken on an entirely new personality. Today, the city of Pittsburgh is one of the most attractive urban settings in the nation. Visitors arriving from the new Pittsburgh International Airport approach the city through the Fort Pitt Tunnel and are delivered into a downtown glistening with skyscrapers. Banked on all sides by water and lush green hills, Pittsburgh was once described as "the only city in America with an entrance."

Point State Park Duquesne Incline Gateway Clipper

Point State Park stands at the confluence of three mighty rivers—the Allegheny, the Monongahela, and the Ohio—marking one corner of the compact downtown area known as the Golden Triangle. Point State Park also houses one of the world's tallest fountains which sprays 6,000 gallons of water a minute up to 150 feet in the air. The Pittsburgh Hilton Hotel is located adjacent to Point State Park and commands a dramatic view of this historical site. Or, you may choose to take the Duquesne Incline up to Mount Washington for a panoramic view of the city and beyond.
