The Golden Anniversary of the Conference of Metallurgists
Edited by Joël Kapusta, Phillip Mackey and Nathan Stubina
This book commemorating the 50th Annual Conference of Metallurgists of the Metallurgy and Materials Society of CIM (MetSoc) was compiled to document how the “metallurgical landscape” in Canada has evolved over the 50-year period from the early 1960s, when in 1962, the first Conference of Metallurgists was held, up to the present day. This retrospective also provides us with an opportunity to look forward, hence some ideas on forces likely to shape the future are also included in this volume; a summary of the results of an informal survey of MetSoc members is also included.
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.
In a context where fossil fuel consumption and the emissions associated with it is a major global problem, it is highly relevant to consider the use of lightweight materials like aluminium, magnesium and titanium in a variety of end products, especially in the field of transport. It is therefore important to conduct advanced research on these materials, from production, to processing, to design of finished products, taking into account the material involved (Design for X).
This proceedings volume contains articles concerning research fields that are both fundamental and practical, and that are written by researchers from academia, government and private companies. The volume contains articles from Canada, but also from countries as diverse as Saudi Arabia, the United States, France, India, Italy, Norway, New Zealand and Turkey.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Canadian Milling Practice is the fourth in a series of special volumes published by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) since 1957. Like its predecessors, the book is composed of submissions from metallurgists describing technical aspects of Canadian or Canadian company-owned mineral processing operations. These aspects include deposit geology and ore mineralogy, processing flowsheets, equipment types and specifications, key performance indicators, tailings management and processing costs. Mineral processing operations are detailed for commodities such as precious metals, iron ores, base metals, diamonds and industrial minerals. The book also presents Canadian laboratories providing services and conducting research for the mineral processing industry, as well as Canadian universities offering programs in the field of mineral processing.

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.
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.
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.
