:: CSM Laboratory Upgrade for new MSc Mineral Processing


Camborne School of Mines (CSM), a department of the University of Exeter, has recently acquired a suite of state-of-the-art electrochemical measurement techniques. Prof. Hylke Glass says: “This equipment enhances CSM’s capability to study complex chemical processes which take place during the leaching of minerals from ores and the subsequent precipitation of metals. The equipment will be fully integrated into laboratory practicals of the Extractive Metallurgy module, which is part of the MSc Minerals Processing programme, and support ongoing research.”

The new MSc Minerals Processing programme at CSM will welcome its first cohort in September 2018. Programme lead Dr Rob Fitzpatrick states: “The programme addresses the industrial need for more trained minerals process engineers, offering a great opportunity for undergraduates with chemistry, engineering, geology and other related backgrounds to enter the exciting field of mineral processing. The programme provides an excellent opportunity for practical, hands-on learning, featuring the latest developments in mineral processing. Students will also benefit from the wealth of expertise available in industry, particularly from mineral engineering companies based in south west UK.

The MSc Minerals Processing programme, including a part-time blended learning option for working professionals, is enthusiastically supported by the CSM Trust. For the full-time MSc Minerals Processing programme, the CSM Trust currently offers five scholarships of £6k for successful applicants.
