We are looking forward to the Mining Society of Nova Scotia 129th Annual Meeting on June 9-10th. As an added bonus, we’ll be hosting an extractive metallurgist from RPC, Neri Botha, PEng, who will be presenting a talk entitled, Bio-Oxidation of Au Tailings Material. She’ll explain how genomics is involved. Hope to see lots of members of the mining community there.
Mineral Resources Review is one of the largest mining conferences in Atlantic Canada. As part of this year’s event on Nov 5-6, Lesley Warren, PhD, will share her thoughts on how mining companies can use genomics to better manage the microbial processes at work in the industry.

Some of the best and brightest minds from academia and industry explained how they tackle tough environmental challenges.
This rapid fire afternoon of information and networking was like speed-dating for those seeking innovation!
Companies and researchers each had three minutes to share their interests and expertise, plus ample time to explore opportunities through networking. Representatives from federal and provincial agencies were on hand to discuss R&D funding opportunities.
Topics ranged from nanotechnology and heavy metals to tailings, remediation and migrating trees. So the potential was HUGE for new innovations.
Connections were made. Ideas were hatched. And as they say, a good time was had by all.
Special thanks to our partners, Springboard Atlantic, and the Atlantic Reclamation Conference 2015 for letting us piggyback on their great gathering of environmentally-focused minds.
