Proceedings of COM 2017 - 56th Annual Conference of Metallurgists Hosting World Gold and Nickel-Cobalt
978-1-926872-36-0, August 27-30, 2017 Vancouver
All peer-reviewed papers presented at the conference. Topics include:
Advanced Measuring Techniques and Technologies in Mineral Processing | Advances in Materials Manufacturing III | Corrosion and Environmental Degradation of Materials | Enabling Innovation in Metallurgy | Energy and Eco-Efficiency in Mining and Processing | General Hydrometallurgy | Light Metal Alloys: Processing for Performance | Nickel-Cobalt 2017 (4th International Conference) | World Gold (7th International Conference)
The inspiration for this book came from Professor Ed Asselin and the desire to disseminate expert knowledge and insights from experienced professionals in the field of copper hydrometallurgy. Examples of recognizing and effectively meeting challenges and applying established and front-line knowledge and practical insights are provided in this book. The hope is that practitioners in the field will find the material in this book to be practically useful. If the reader could sit down with the authors of this book and "talk shop", this is the kind of material that would likely inform those conversations.
While a great deal of literature on project and construction management exists, as do many reference books on the fundamentals of metallurgy and engineering principles, very little information is available on the design process, which translates these fundamentals into the design of a properly functioning metallurgical facility. This book fills the information gap.

International standards for the reporting of Mineral Resources, Mineral
Reserves and Exploration Results have been developing at a rapid pace for
the past twenty years due to the globalization of the mining industry.
Standards for the valuation of Mineral Properties have followed a similar
course. This volume contains the current Canadian Reporting Standards for
Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves. These are the Canadian Institute of
Mining Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Definition Standards for Mineral
Resources and Mineral Reserves, the Canadian stock exchange requirements
for disclosure on mineral properties, the CIM Best Practices, and papers
describing industry practice. Canadian Valuation Standards, stock exchange
requirements, and papers describing industry best practice form the second
portion of the volume. Current international reporting standards for mineral
resources and reserves and valuation of mineral properties have also been
included in the respective section.
A handful of Canadians, awakened by the potential of new technology, made Canada the foremost nation in the world in the exploration of mineral resources. Author Norman Reed Paterson, respected worldwide for his innovations in geophysical technology and his indomitable spirit of exploration, takes the reader into the bush, the laboratory, and the office—often with humour—to observe the key players who, through determination and willingness to take risks, showed the world a new way to find mines.
The North American Mine Ventilation Symposium is organized and led by a coalition of 4 leading partners. Since the first Symposium in 1982, the Underground Ventilation Committee (UVC) has sought to provide mine ventilation engineers and technicians in the underground coal, metal, and industrial mineral mining industry with the latest information and operating practices from the field and promote the exchange of ideas and research in a variety of related areas to include the monitoring of air contaminants, determining fresh air requirements, and producing power efficient ventilation and cooling systems and energy-related topics.
CIM’s Special Volume 57 is the third volume in a series of books dedicated to porphyry deposits of the northwestern Cordillera and is timely, given the increased levels of exploration for precious and base metals seen throughout western British Columbia, southwest Yukon and southern Alaska over the past number of years. With the increasing importance of copper in the sustainable future of global society, this volume presents a series of papers focused on porphyry deposits, the major source of this green metal globally, structured into two sections.
This Special Volume will be of interest to geologists, explorers, miners and anyone wanting to learn more about this core part of the mining landscape in Canada and Alaska.
The well-attended 2019 Annual Conference of Metallurgists hosted the 10th edition of the International Copper Conference Series, and the event was co-organized by MetSoc and 7 other international societies which ensured an incredibly global presence.
COM + Copper 2019 attracted more than 1,000 attendees, featured 311 oral presentations within nine symposia, and 55 posters.

The history of metallurgy in Canada since 1900 represents a vast historical topic. This report seeks to provide a coherent summary by focussing on three core themes: the histories of major companies involved in the production of base metals, the nature and evolution of metallurgical engineering, and significant Canadian contributions to the international field of metallurgy. Each theme is discussed in a chapter of this report. This broad overview makes it possible to address fundamental questions, particularly whether Canada experienced a “golden age” of metallurgical research and development that spanned the second half of the twentieth century, and, if so, whether this period has come to an end.
This book traces the changing ways in which research and development occurred in Canada's mining and metallurgy sector from the 1950s to the present day. The study is a collaborative project developed by Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation and the Historical Metallurgy Section of the Metallurgy & Materials Society (MetSoc).
“Women of Impact” is a celebration of women’s achievements in science and engineering. Based on in-person interviews, this collection profiles eighteen women who have made significant contributions to the fields of materials, metallurgy, and mining in Canada. Their compelling stories and impressive achievements reveal how women have defied stereotypes, pushed through barriers, and passionately engaged with their industry.
