Metallurgy and minerals processing research

Mineral processing engineers work to meet the mineral demands of the modern civilisation in an environmentally responsible way by designing innovative processes that minimise solid waste and water usage, and maximise energy efficiency.

Metallurgy and minerals processing is devoted to scientific, engineering, and economic aspects of the preparation, separation, extraction, and purification of ores, metals, and mineral products by both physical and chemical methods.
