Canada's first openpit mining research chair to be in Sudbury
January 15, 2013

Canadian gold mining company Iamgold will fund a new research chair position in openpit mining at the Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.

The Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University is creating the position with a $1.25 million investment from Toronto-based Iamgold Corp.

“This investment represents a critically important enhancement of our research capacity at the Bharti School,” said Dr. Ramesh Subramanian, the school’s director.

“This new Research Chair will attract more cutting-edge knowledge to our mining engineering programs and will certainly augment our international reputation in mining.”

Laurentian said it hopes to have a candidate in place by July of this year.

“The future of the mining industry depends on our ability to step up the pace of innovation and this has to start with educational programs and research opportunities specializing in advanced mining techniques,” said Steve Letwin, Iamgold’s president and CEO.

“With the development of our Côté Gold project in northern Ontario as an open-pit mine, it’s gratifying to know that we will be both helping to address the serious shortage of skilled mining professionals in this country and creating job opportunities for our future mining engineers.”
