The Future of Mining in Cornwall
Friday 30 June 2023, 3 - 5pm
An Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI), the Department of Earth and Environmental Science (DEES) and the Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Technology Metals (Met4Tech) event.
The Camborne School of Mines (CSM), within the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (DEES) has been leading research on critical metals for many years, in partnership with local government, exploration companies and NGOs. In one of the current projects, the Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Technology Metals (Met4Tech), is working with CSM and its partners to investigate how circular economy principles can be embedded within geomodels, in order to achieve a sustainable technology critical metals industry in Cornwall and elsewhere. This #esi10 event aims to give participants an update, using publicly available information, on exploration activities in Cornwall and on the research in Met4Tech that is building future circular economy scenarios for sustainable mining in Cornwall. The meeting will give all attendees an opportunity to share ideas and build new collaborations about renewed mining in our county.
