University of Newfoundland receives mineral analysis equipment to advance mining research

Peak steel?

The Research & Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador (RDC) and the Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC) has provided a grant to the Memorial University of Newfoundland that will be used to purchase a Field Emission Gun Scanning Electron Microscope with automated Mineral Liberation Analyses (MLA) software.

“The mineral industry is one of Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest industries,” noted Glenn Janes, Chief Executive Officer, RDC.

“Today’s investment marks an important milestone in mineral research and will ensure researchers have the technical and industrial equipment they need to bolster this province’s mineral research strengths and contribute to mineral industry exploration and development,” he said.
