McGill mining research receives $1.5M from Canada Clean Growth Program

August 12, 2019

McGill University has received $1.5M from Natural Resources Canada’s Clean Growth Program for a project focused on cleaner demolition technology. The program invests in clean technology research and development projects in Canada’s energy, mining, and forest sectors. “The goal of this project is to create, test and validate a revolutionary method for rock fragmentation for underground mining and tunnelling projects,” said McGill Director of Mining Engineering Hani Mitri. “This technology will revolutionize mining and tunnelling by achieving a more efficient, far safer, and more environmentally friendly technique for rock fragmentation.” McGill (QC)
