:: Last Chance for CEEC Medal Applications – Nominate Outstanding Published Energy-Efficient Approaches Now


Applications for the prestigious 2019 CEEC Medal are closing soon. Please submit your application by 15 March.

The CEEC Medal celebrates the most outstanding published paper, article or case study that demonstrates more energy-efficient comminution through improved practices or innovative technologies. Medals can be awarded to authors in two categories:

  • Operations
  • Technical research

CEEC CEO Alison Keogh said CEEC welcomed a wide range of applications that demonstrated improvement or innovation advances that drive energy efficient comminution and mineral processing.

“CEEC is proud to share leading advances and successful operational approaches to help global mining companies find the best solutions for their operations. Smart crushing, grinding and complementary technologies can improve costs, reduce footprint, reduce energy intensity and enhance productivity,” she said.

CEEC Medal Evaluation Committee Chair Dr Zeljka Pokrajcic said the CEEC Medal was intended to bring attention to ‘best-in-class’ research or documentation in the field of energy-efficient comminution.

“The area of comminution (crushing and grinding ore) provides significant opportunities for improved profit and energy efficiency gains in the mining industry,” she said.

Key evaluation criteria

  • The potential improvement in comminution energy efficiency and the financial benefits resulting from that improvement.
  • The ability of the concepts outlined in the paper, article or case study to be readily adapted to an operating plant or into the design of new circuits.
  • The robustness of the data analysis and conclusions drawn.
  • The extent to which the paper, article or case study communicates its ideas clearly and effectively.

Submissions must be of a standard suitable for technical review, and must have been written and/or presented within the past 18 months

Submission process

You can nominate your own work or the work of others. To apply, click hereto send through the following application details before 15 March 2019.

  • CEEC Medal application form – provides information about author/s and the submitted work
  • A copy of the published paper, article or case study
  • An abstract of the published work (maximum one page).
