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 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.

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.

L'histoire de la métallurgie au Canada depuis 1900 représente un vaste sujet historique. Ce rapport cherche à en fournir un résumé cohérent en se concentrant sur trois thèmes principaux : le passé historique des grandes compagnies qui participaient à la production des métaux communs, la nature et l’évolution de l’ingénierie métallurgique et les importantes contributions canadiennes au domaine international de la métallurgie. Chaque thème est abordé dans un chapitre de ce rapport. Grâce à ce large tour d’horizon, il est possible de traiter de questions fondamentales. On cherche particulièrement à savoir si le Canada a vécu un « âge d’or » de la recherche et du développement métallurgique qui se serait étendu sur la deuxième moitié du 20e siècle et, dans l’affirmative, si cette période est terminée.
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).
