About the Hydrometallurgy Section

The Hydrometallurgy Section of MetSoc has the same basic mandate as Metsoc with a specific focus on people involved in hydrometallurgical processes and technologies.

The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is the leading technical society for professionals in the Canadian minerals and materials industry since 1898. CIM's 12,000 members worldwide are concerned with the discovery, production, utilization and economics of minerals (including petroleum) and materials (including metals).

The Metallurgy and Materials Society (MetSoc) of the CIM was formed in 1967 under the umbrella of CIM to serve the needs of all Canadian Metallurgists working to transform ores to metals and other useful commercial products. MetSoc exists to maintain excellence in the industry by providing an open forum for exchanging and spreading knowledge among engineers, scientists and technical personnel and students. It also acts as a catalyst in enhancing the growth of its members who are engaged in all phases of minerals, metals and materials industry.

The Hydrometallurgy Section of MetSoc has the same basic mandate as Metsoc with a specific focus on the people involved with hydrometallurgical processes and technologies.
