By June 18, 2019 No Comments

Dear Colleagues:

The 2019 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Mineral Processors Southern Ontario Branch will be on Thursday, September 5th 2019. This year the meeting will be held at a new location, the Westin Harbour Castle Toronto.  The format will be the same as previous years with networking at noon including a light lunch, then the technical program in the afternoon, wrapping up with a dinner and a guest speaker in the evening. 

The theme for the meeting will be “Minimizing Tailings Production and Storage Risk“. At this time, we are issuing a general call for 20 minutes technical presentations, where no written paper is required. We are looking for presentations with a focus on novel technologies that either minimize the production of tailings, such as ore sorting, dry processing or smart comminution processes, or reduce the risk of tailings storage, such as dry stack tailings, new dewatering techniques, or remote sensing technology to ensure dam safety . This is a great opportunity to exchange technical information and to demonstrate to the students all the exciting opportunities there are in the mining and mineral processing industry.   Please contact Erin Bobicki ( for submittal of your presentation or any questions related to the presentations.


Registration is now open for the 2019 Annual Southern Ontario Branch Meeting! The event will take place Thursday, September 5th, 2019 at the Westin Harbour Castle Toronto from 12-9pm. The day will include presentations on “Minimizing Tailings Production and Storage Risk”,  a networking lunch, and dinner featuring a guest speaker. 

Tickets are limited—reserve your spot today!

Please feel free to share this event with any colleagues who may not be on our mailing list.

See you in September!
