PRE-ORDER: Porphyry Deposits of the Northwestern Cordillera of North America: A 25-Year Update - Available December 2020.

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. Section 1 comprises informative and detailed reviews of the porphyry-related metallogenic evolution of key belts throughout the Cordillera, possible linkages between porphyry and epithermal deposits in some important districts in British Columbia, greenrock exploration vectors in porphyry deposits, and the potential geological significance of platinum group elements that commonly occur in many porphyry deposits in British Columbia. Section 1 concludes with reviews of recent technological developments in the fields of geometallurgy, and tailings management as relevant to porphyry copper ores. The papers in section 1 provide a solid framework for the descriptions of individual porphyry deposits in Section 2. Some deposits are formally documented for the first time (e.g. IKE, Kwanika and Gnat Pass) and others benefit from updated geological descriptions (e.g., the Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell-Iron Cap-Snowfield cluster of deposits, which are all well represented). 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.

Copper Hydrometallurgy: Principles and Practice (Electronic Handbook)

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. The book begins with an overview of the thermodynamics of leaching. Choosing thermodynamic data wisely is considered and then how to make use of those data to gain a sense of what is possible. Arguably, the key step in hydrometallurgy is leaching. The next four chapters deal with leaching in detail, including kinetics, heap leaching, concentrate leaching, and bioleaching. Solvent extraction for the most part follows leaching in practice and is developed next with a focus on practical considerations. Metal production by electrowinning and purification by electrorefining follow in the next chapter, which focuses on practical aspects and reviews state-of-the-art developments. Finally, applications of ion exchange are considered as versatile means to solve several purification problems in copper hydrometallurgy.

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.

Mining Geophysics: A Canadian Story

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.

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.
