Finding, developing, and extracting mineral resources goes smoothest when everyone on the team works together, communicates effectively, and understands the whole value chain – not just one piece of it. But all too often, mining engineers, geologists, and metallurgists work in separate silos.
The Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources collaborated with Newmont Mining and Freeport-McMoRan Inc. to develop a series of three short courses designed to remove communication barriers and improve collaboration among geologists, mining engineers, and metallurgists. Each course introduces the fundamentals and role of one profession to the other two, from the perspective of top geologists, engineers, and metallurgists in the mining industry.
