SDC 2019 Proceedings—PDF

4th International Conference on Shaft Design and Construction, a Symposium organized by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum. In collaboration with The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3)

The Development of Metallurgy in Canada since 1900—PRINT VERSION

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.

The Economic Benefits of Research and Development in the Canadian Mining and Metallurgy Sector—PDF

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).

Waste Processing in Mineral and Metallurgical Industries VI—PDF

This is the sixth in a series of symposia, which started in 1992, on waste processing and recycling in the mineral and metallurgical industry. The symposia have been held in Edmonton, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Hamilton and now Montréal. They are sponsored by the Environment Section of the Metallurgical Society in collaboration with other interested Sections and held at the annual Conference of Metallurgists. The present one is also co-sponsored by the Minerals, Metals and Material Society (TMS) of the U.S.A., and Mining and Materials Institute of Japan.

World Gold 2011—PDF

The World Gold Conference is hosted alternatively by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) and the Southern Africa Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM). The conference completed its first cycle with the 2009 Gold Conference in Johannesburg. After 3 successful events, the conference returned to Canada for the 50th Anniversary of the Metallurgy and Materials Society of CIM. According to the World Gold Council, the rise in demand for bars, coins and jewellery increased the global gold demand in the first quarter of 2011 totalling 981.3 tonnes, up 11% year-on-year from 881.0 tonnes in the first quarter of 2010. In value terms, this translated to US$43.7bn, compared with US$31.4bn in the first quarter of 2010, an increase of almost 40%. The gold price exploded in the summer of 2011, reaching $1,850 USD/oz, in August. Many large projects were initiated by mining companies following the constantly increasing price of gold.
