Mining societies unite to form technical partnership

By |  November 4, 2013

Four global mining organizations, including the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration Inc. (SME), entered into a memorandum of understanding to establish the Global Mineral Professionals Alliance (GMPA). The organizations, which include the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, and Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, will share education and public information.

Services and benefits will include technical workshops and meetings, access to print and online libraries, print and online publications and host member registration rates for conferences. Over time, the GMPA intends to invite all professional and technical mining organizations from around the world to consider membership in the alliance.
