EIT RM University Day

Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Join EIT Raw Materials and Oulu Mining School: University of Oulu for a free virtual Raw Materials University Day!

- Network with researchers and industry professionals in geosciences, mineral processing and mining engineering.

- Participate in expert-led workshops with a geoscientific focus on drill core data processing using the latest IMDEX ioGASTM geochemical plotting software; a mining engineering spotlight on the determination of uniaxial compression strength to benefit mine planning and blasting; and a mineral processing-centered look at the flotation process.

- Be the first to hear about upcoming opportunities in the raw materials sector, and kickstart your academic career.


8:30 – 8:45    Welcoming words (Prof. Saija Luukkanen, Head of the Oulu Mining School)

8:45 – 9:00    Student experience in EIT-Label Master programmes

9:00 – 9:15  The importance of social skills in mining and mineral exploration (Dr. Jukka-Pekka Ranta, Post-doctoral researcher, Oulu Mining School)

9:15 – 9:30     Break 

9:30 – 12:00   Mining engineering and mineral processing workshop (Prof. Saija Luukkanen and Prof. Zongxian Zhang)

Workshop has two parts and will include lectures and assignments:
 -   Design and upscaling of flotation process.
 -   Mining related rock mechanics and rock blasting (Prof. Zongxian Zhang, Oulu Mining School).

12:00 – 12.30   Break

12:30 – 16:30   Geological workshop (Dr. Nick Cook, Mawson Gold Limited)
This workshop will concentrate on data processing of drill core geochemical data using IMDEX ioGASTM geochemical plotting software. Each participant will receive temporary license to the IMDEX ioGASTM and access to the geochemical database of Rajapalot Au-Co occurrence in northern Finland that is used during the workshop.
