IMII is hosting IDEATE 2024 on June 19th 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. 

This year’s event features eight areas of challenges identified by our minerals company members.  Details on each area can be found in the IDEATE 2024 Agenda & Research Topics document below. 

  • Health & Safety
  • Processing Technology
  • Technologies to Decrease Water Usage in Potash
  • Mineral Systems and Advanced Geoscience Capabilities
  • Mining Technology
  • Data Processing / Analytics
  • Complex Extraction Systems
  • Energy Utilization

Registration is now open for IMII’s post-secondary and research institutions members.  Registration closes on May 6th.

Registration for IMII’s industry members will open on May 13th.
