Canadian Mineral Processors (CMP)

About Us

We integrate all levels of mineral processing from academics and research to construction, operations and downstream processing. Participating in our regional and national events enables extensive networking and knowledge sharing opportunities across all these areas. We strive to build the know-how and mineral processing wisdom from the time our members are students and onwards into their careers.

CMP is CIM’s largest society with almost 1,700 members. Our constituents primarily represent the Canadian mineral processing community; however about 20 per cent of the delegates at our annual conferences are from outside Canada. Our delegates are suppliers (40 per cent), industry professionals (25 per cent), consultants (25 per cent) and 10 per cent academia and government representatives.

“The Canadian Mineral Processors Society promotes our profession by sharing knowledge and cultivating the values of integrity, respect and professionalism. CMP focuses a lot on students, teaching them about the beauty of the industry in order to have continuity in the mining and mineral processing world.”
