2017 CEEC Medal Nominations Now Open – Mining Comminution Energy Improvements

Nominate the most outstanding advance demonstrating progress towards more productive and energy-efficient comminution for the 2017 CEEC Medal.

The CEEC Medal attracts global attention and interest. It is recognised by the mining industry as the pre-eminent award for advances in comminution energy efficiency.

CEEC’s Directors invite you to submit your application now, or to nominate others. Two categories will be assessed: Best operations paper and best research paper. Published papers, articles or case studies of high quality suitable for technical review can be submitted.

Comminution is typically the most energy-hungry activity in a mining operation. The CEEC Medal raises the status of beneficial energy-efficient approaches to mining, mineral processing and comminution.

Winning ideas promoted through the CEEC Medal are an inspiration to the global mining sector. The outstanding ideas provide examples of successful approaches and help drive productivity and efficiency gains and sustainable solutions for business.
