Prior to joining Amec Foster Wheeler, Lorne worked in consulting for Hatch, head office for Cameco, and operations for Cameco, AREVA and Teck. He lectured an “Introduction to Mineral Processing” course at University of Saskatchewan for several years, leading to the recent establishment of a mineral processing option in the department of Chemical Engineering.

He currently volunteers as the Saskatchewan region representative for the Canadian Mineral Processors Society of the CIM, and organizes its annual regional technical conference.

Presentation: Potash and Uranium in Saskatchewan – Two Trains of Thought

Saskatchewan hosts world class production of both uranium and potash, and Saskatoon provides a key base of support for both industries. With such fertile ground for radiating know-how, why does it seem that there is so little crossover of mineral processing expertise and technology from one commodity to the other? The trains of thought behind design and operation of Saskatchewan uranium and potash are compared and contrasted.
