2019 Atlantic Canada Regional Mineral Processors Conference

By July 17, 2019 No Comments

Dear Colleagues,

We hope to see you in Halifax on October 16th, 2019 for our inaugural Atlantic Canada Region Canadian Mineral Processors (CMP) conference.

This will be an opportunity for the industry to come together, learn and exchange on topics that are near and dear to mineral processors. We expect to see good representation from all facets of the industry, including Operators, Academics, Vendors, Engineering Consultants and Students, which is guaranteed to provide for a rich networking experience.

CMP is a division of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM). Given the recent heightened interest in gold in Nova Scotia, the timing was right to re-establish the CMP’s presence in the Atlantic region.

We are planning a full day of activities, including a half-day session of technical presentations, a Keynote presentation and dinner at Halifax’s Lot Six Bar & Restaurant (

We invite you to attend our Atlantic Canada Region CMP conference and to consider presenting at our event.
