Researchers to focus on the benefits of emerging new materials to the mining industry
On Friday, December 2, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. , researchers at Laurentian University and representatives from the mineral industry will take part in the Materials and Manufacturing Ontario (MMO) and Emerging Materials Knowledge (EMK) Research Day. This event will take place in the Willet Green Miller Centre. Members of the media are invited to attend.
Materials science is a fundamental pillar of the mining and mineral processing sectors, representing the preparation and characterization of mineral-derived products. This symposium will enable representatives from the mineral industry and the University to gain information on the application of mineral-derived materials and their properties to emerging new materials for the benefit of the mining industry.
The following guest will share their expertise in this area: Dr. André-Marie Tremblay, University of Sherbrooke University, 9 to 9:30 a.m.; Dr. Cathleen Crudden, Queen's University, 9:30 to 10 a.m.; Mr. Robert Marshall, Director of Network and Corporate Development at MMO, 1:30 to 2 p.m.; and Dr. Louis Mercier, professor and Director of the Centre in Mining Materials Research (CIMMR) at Laurentian University, 2 to 2:30 p.m.
The conference is hosted by Mr. Robert Marshall, Director of Network and Corporate Development at MMO, and Dr. Louis Mercier, professor and Director of CIMMR at Laurentian University.
For more information, please call Dr. Louis Mercier, chemistry professor and Director of CIMMR at Laurentian University, at (705) 675-1151, ext. 2175, or Mr. Mike Grace, Laurentian University MMO Network Liaison Director, at (705) 675-1151, ext. 1014.
