VANCOUVER, BC, May 28, 2017 – Syniad Innovations Inc (“Syniad”) is pleased to announce that it has secured an important new advisory relationship with UBC’s Department of Mining Engineering.
This is a highly respected department – one of the original foundations of UBC – that has been at the forefront of the field for over 100 years. Today, it is one of North America’s largest and most advanced mining education and research centres.
Syniad’s new role will involve helping the department define its strategic research plan: the mine of the future.
Syniad’s CEO, John Davies, commented, “It’s an exciting time for mining, as the world begins a transition away from fossil fuel feedstocks and towards strategic metals. To a considerable extent, strategic metals are the new frontier of the sustainable economy and devising the next wave of modern, responsible processes for exploration, mining and mineral processing is one of the grand challenges”.
