CBU part­ners with pri­vate firm on min­ing re­search

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

SYD­NEY — Ground­break­ing re­search on min­ing tech­nol­ogy that is be­ing car­ried out at Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity has been given a fi­nan­cial shot in the arm. The At­lantic Canada Op­por­tu­ni­ties Agency (ACOA) has an- nounced a con­tri­bu­tion of $400,000 to help CBU and Yava Tech­nolo­gies Inc. con­tinue ef­forts to make min­ing more ef­fi­cient while low­er­ing emis­sions. The part­ner­ship will de­sign, build and val­i­date a pi­lot-scale min­ing plant to demon­strate a closed-loop process for treat­ing a va­ri­ety of com­plex min­eral de­posits and in­dus­trial waste. Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Tech­nol­ogy Canada is con­tribut­ing the same amount to sup­port the pro­ject that in­cludes a state-ofthe-art lab­o­ra­tory at CBU’s Ver­schuren Cen­tre for Sus­tain­abil­ity in Energy and the En­vi­ron­ment.
