The conference will feature presentations on various aspects of mineral processing including comminution, flotation, gold and iron ore processing, mineralogy, mill optimization, process control and projects.

The Canadian Mineral Processors (CMP) is a Technical Society of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum and had its beginning as an operator-oriented group called the Canadian Gold Metallurgists. The formation of the Canadian Gold Metallurgists was predicated on the principle of “Cost plus tails”, i.e. obtaining the lowest possible cost per ton of ore milled with the highest recovery possible. This focus on operators and their interests is maintained as a priority today.
CMP PAPER ON HISTORY OF THE CMP
The CMP is organized across the country into ten Regions with a Representative from each Region sitting on the Board of Directors. The Executive includes a Past Chairman, Chairman, 1st Vice-Chairman, 2nd Vice-Chairman, Secretary and a Treasurer. Three meetings of the Board are held on an annual basis, two in January and one in September. The principal technical meeting of the Division is the Annual Operators Conference held during the 3rd full week of January in Ottawa . In addition, the CMP sponsors several technical sessions and symposia at all CIM Annual General Meetings and at The Metallurgical Society’s Annual Conference of Metallurgists.
Each Region will try to host one or two technical meetings each year and these generally include a mill/mine tour. The CMP has always been a strong believer and supporter of education programs, both those initiated by CIM as well as those initiated by CMP on a national and regional basis.
At the regional level surplus funds are generally awarded to selected students. Nationally the CMP invites two selected students, from each of the Universities and Technical Schools in offering courses in Mineral Processing, to their Annual Operator’s Conference all expenses fully paid. This provides the students with an excellent opportunity to meet with industry operators and become familiar with current problems and practices.
CMP’s Mission, Vision and Values
The Canadian Mineral Processors’ Division of CIM exists to provide an open and friendly forum for Mineral Processing Operators across and throughout the world to meet, network and exchange technical information. CMP accomplishes this by offering one national meeting each year plus a number of regional meetings across the country to which all those involved in the Mineral Processing industry are invited and welcome.
CMP commits to serve and promote the industry by encouraging all participants to develop and share new knowledge and good practices, cultivate and maintain core values of integrity, respect and professionalism, teach and support its students, and recognize its contributors, heritage and roots.
CMP aspires to become the world’s premier Mineral Processing Organization by fostering innovation but remaining practical and relevant, and by actively encouraging all those who contribute to the industry, including operators, suppliers, engineers, academics, consultants, executives, government, students and retirees, to participate and enjoy lifelong the fellowship of this community.
