Online/Canada – CIM 2022

The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) convention and expo will be held online and in Vancouver, Canada from 1st-4th May 2022.

The nine technical topics are:

  • Transitions: The Digital Platform;
  • Operations;
  • Environment: Reliance & Adaptability;
  • The Value of People: Mining for Talent and Social Forces in Mining;
  • Markets & Finance;
  • Geotechnical;
  • Geology: Mineralizing Systems & Beyond;
  • Protecting our People; and
  • Impact of Processing Advances on Mining Economics.

The opening keynote and plenary speaker at this year’s event is Beau Lotto, Founder & CEO of Lab of Misfits/Lab of Misfits AR who is an authority on perception.

The conference organizers said that Lotto is world-renowned for his work in modifying perceptions to adapt to a changing world, and he'll be sharing his expertise in a mind-altering panel on the topic 'Thriving Because of Uncertainty'. It will address how people, communities and businesses need to adapt to constantly changing new realities, including adapting to our perception of reality itself, and how this could help us to thrive in an uncertain future.

“It’s time to take mining into the future, where we won’t just adapt, we’ll thrive,” they said. “After you hear Beau, you will think differently.”

The technical program will be presented in-person with the presenters at the Vancouver Convention Center as well as in the form of a pre-recorded video on the virtual platform. Delegates can register for the conference here.

The Canadian Mineral Processors (CMP) 54th annual Canadian Mineral Processors’ Operators Conference, which was originally set to take place in January 2022, has been rescheduled for May and will now be part of the in-person CIM convention and expo.

Delegates who were already registered for the original CMP Conference can carry over their registration for the new date and venue.
