Mining and Minerals Engineering

Camborne School of Mines provides a diverse range of research opportunities reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the expertise of the academic staff. Mining and Minerals Engineering research students, work alongside the Mining and Minerals Research Group. The challenges facing the mining industry include not just finding enough mineral resources to meet demand but to produce those minerals in a way that causes least harm, and conveys maximum advantage, to the environment and to society. Many research projects at Camborne School of Mines contribute towards these aims. We call this topic 'responsible mining and sustainable use of natural resources'. A selection of our projects is given in subsequent sections to illustrate the diversity of research required to make mining more economic, resource and energy efficient and safe; to protect the environment; to promote sustainable development and to ensure security of minerals supply. We work together in multidisciplinary teams that can include mining engineers, minerals engineers, geotechnical engineers, geologists and mineralogists, and with colleagues elsewhere in the university, especially in areas such as corporate social responsibility. Many projects are carried out in collaboration with external industry colleagues and with national and international research partners
