Branching out

CIM looking to expand its reach to Mississauga

By K. Shaw

Recently, a small group of CIM members in Mississauga, Ontario, have been working to bring a CIM presence to the area. On January 26, the group held its inaugural event to kick off this initiative, where members of the Mississauga mining community mingled over lunch and listened to CIM Distinguished Lecturer Stephen Scott give a talk on seafloor massive sulphide mining.

The lecture captivated the audience and generated some interesting discussions among the attendees. The event was a great success, with more than 60 people from over 15 different companies in attendance.

The next luncheon lecture will be held on Wednesday, April 7. Sean Capstick, associate and group manager, Atmospheric Services Group, Golder Associates Ltd, will be presenting: “Incorporating Climate Change Science into Mining Design Considerations.” For more information or to RSVP, email Panteha Momini at

Kerry Shaw is a member of the CIM Mississauga interim organizing committee.
