51 COM, Rare Earths 2012—PDF

Since the mid-1980s, we have seen a significant and accelerating number of advancements in technology which continue to enhance our quality of life. These technologies, be they in the areas of renewable energy production, energy storage or demand-side energy efficiency, hybrid vehicles, tablet computers, smartphones, digital displays or lasers all rely on materials made possible by the rare earth elements (commonly referred to as “rare earths”). Consumer and policy-driven demand for these advanced technology products has strained the supply of available rare earths. The rare earth supply chain, from mine to final product, is complex and relatively long, and faces a number of unique challenges particularly as it is in its relatively early stages of development. It is therefore critically important to conduct research on all steps of the supply chain, from geology, extraction, separation and refining, to final product design, and lifecycle management and recycling. Also important is an understanding of the economic and environmental issues related to meeting the demand for rare earth based materials. This inaugural Rare Earths Symposium at the Conference of Metallurgists aims to provide a collaborative forum to discuss these critical and timely issues.

Copper Hydrometallurgy: Principles and Practice—PDF

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.

Las Relaciones y el Curso de los Eventos Sociales durante la Exploración Minera

Los códigos y lineamientos de responsabilidad social para la exploración de minerales y la industria minera a menudo no han considerado los procesos sociológicos que afectan las relaciones entre los diversos interesados. En este libro, Jan Boon se enfoca en el lado humano de la exploración minera al profundizar en las formas en que los geocientíficos adoptan valores éticos, apoyan la vida humana y administran los recursos naturales a lo largo del proceso minero.

Metallurgical Plant Design

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.

Mineral Resources / Reserves and Valuation Standards SV 56 (2010) Book & PDF COMBO

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.

Pyrometallurgy: Towards Clean Metallurgical Processing for Profit, Social and Environmental Stewardship 2012—PDF

The Clean Processing Symposium is organized by the Non-Ferrous Pyrometallurgy Section of the Metallurgical Society of CIM as part of COM 2012. Although the main focus of the section is to promote and support the activities of professionals in the field of pyrometallurgy, we recognize the importance of technical developments in other fields of extractive metallurgy as complementary to the overall goal of sustainability in our industry. Developments in pyrometallurgy have undergone resurgence over the past few years as we are driven to meet the standards set by alternative processes and as our industry gains a better understanding of the challenges presented by those alternatives.

The section is pleased to be able to provide a cross-section of technical developments and commercial applications, illustrating that a coordinated effort will be required to meet future demands for profitable operation in the face of environmental regulations and social expectations. Included in this symposium are papers covering the fields of pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy and mineral processing, for the extraction of metals from aluminum to zinc.

The Development of Metallurgy in Canada since 1900

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.
