Extraction Innovation

The Extraction Innovation research activity is made up of two distinct themes, namely Deep Mining and Emerging Technologies. CanmetMINING has a long history of R&D successes associated with Deep Mining including elements of ground control and analysis of seismic data as well as heat stress mitigation strategies. Notably, CanmetMINING is the initiator and a founding member of the Deep Mining Research Consortium (DMRC - www.deepminingresearch.org).

In the Emerging Technologies theme, several fields of research managed under a consortium approach are underway, including Explosive Free Rock Breakage, Hoisting Technology and Sludge Reclamation and Beneficiation.
