IMII is hosting IDEATE 2023 on September 28th with IMII’s minerals company and post-secondary and research institutions members.  IDEATE is an opportunity to engage together to learn about and discuss problem areas identified by the minerals industry which they believe are amenable to applied research with the potential to lead to the development of innovative solutions.  The ideation phase is meant to be a place to come up with novel, perhaps unconventional, ideas. Interested academics should reach out to the Innovation/Research office at the Saskatchewan Polytechnic, University of Regina, and University of Saskatchewan to register.

In support of this effort, IMII’s minerals industry members have identified several potential areas of focus. These include:

Workshop #1

Health & Safety

Workshop #2

Processing Technology

Workshop #3

Uranium Processing Technology

Workshop #4

Technologies to Decrease Water Usage in Potash

Workshop #5

Mining Technology

Workshop #6

Data Processing / Analytics

Workshop #7

Complex Extraction Systems

Workshop #8

Mineral Systems and Advanced Geoscience Capabilities

Workshop #9
