The economic drivers for the long-term prosperity of the copper commodity market are very encouraging, as society transitions to electric vehicles and new battery technologies. Recognizing this, MDRU is presenting a short course that focuses on “Deep Copper – Exploration, Discovery and Mining” to inform (or re-inform) the exploration and mining community about the importance of underground copper deposits and mineral systems. The presentations will be on November 5 in downtown Vancouver at UBC Robson Campus.
There will be a mix of speakers espousing the exploration and discovery of porphyry and sediment-hosted copper deposits, as well as mining engineers presenting new technology in caving and underground ore-sorting, and industry geologists presenting case studies. Copper mining is evolving and has a different future. This MDRU short course will provide participants with new knowledge and awareness of some world-class discoveries, exploration strategies, and active underground development projects.
