METS Ignited CEO Ric Gros met with Canadian Centre for Mining Innovation Excellence CEO Douglas Morrison to get some insights into the emerging Canadian Supercluster initiative.

That discussion also turned up some opportunities for future collaboration.

METS Ignited is also progressing discussions over potential collaboration opportunities with the Canadian Mining Innovation Council. 

Further discussions are to take place at the PDAC 2018 Convention in Toronto, Canada.

The growth centre also took part at this year’s Global Mining Standards and Guidelines Future Mining Summit at Epiroc’s underground test mine site in Stockholm, Sweden.

The two-day summit attracted senior influencers from global METS and mining companies.
