Minerals in a Sustainable Future. A joint Annual Research in Progress Meeting, hosted by the Applied Mineralogy Group and Environmental Mineralogy Group.

 

We are inviting posters and oral presentations in any branch of applied and environmental mineralogy and biogeochemistry, including: sustainable mining, resource recovery from waste (mine tailings and industrial wastes), low energy ore (bio-) processing, environmental issues related to mineral extraction and land remediation.

We are pleased to announce our two fantastic keynote speakers: Mr Andrew Bloodworth (BGS Science Director for Minerals and Waste) and Dr Ronan Courtney (University of Limerick). The meeting will also include a demonstration of a chosen imaging or analytical electron microscopy-based technique led by Dr Jeremy Rushton, BGS senior petrographer.
