CEEC Recognition: Apply for 2016 CEEC Medal

Nominate the most outstanding technical paper demonstrating more productive and efficient mineral processing for the 2016 CEEC Medal.

Now recognised by the industry as the pre-eminent award for advances in comminution efficiency, the CEEC Medal attracts global attention and interest, publication of the paper in a leading journal and more. CEEC’s Directors invite you to submit your application now. Visit CEEC’s web site where you will find the details for application. Applications close on March 15, 2016.

The CEEC Medal is an annual award intended to recognise and celebrate outstanding published papers, articles or case studies profiling beneficial strategies for energy-efficient comminution. Submissions must be of a standard suitable for technical review, and written and or presented within the past 18 months.

“The CEEC Medal is intended to bring attention to “best-in-class” research or documentation in the field of energy-efficient comminution. This area of mineral processing provides significant opportunities for improved profit and energy efficiency gains in the mining industry” noted CEEC Director Dr Zeljka Pokrajcic.

The CEEC Medal raises the status of beneficial energy-efficient comminution strategies by:
• Recognising and celebrating individuals or teams who make an outstanding contribution in the field of productive energy-efficient comminution strategies.
• Acknowledging individuals or teams who contribute to building global knowledge of productive energy-efficient comminution practices by sharing examples of best practice and leadership in energy-efficient comminution and inspiring similar excellence in others.
• Identifying those who build greater awareness and understanding in the wider community of the benefits of knowledge transfer in the area of energy-efficient comminution and energy productivity.


Selection process
The CEEC Medal Evaluation Committee review the nominated papers assessing aspects such as originality, applicability, supporting research and documentation, prospective impact, potential energy savings, and presentation style. Studies including details of financial benefits from energy efficient processing will attract extra weight in selecting the CEEC Medal in 2016.

• Publication of Medal winning paper in specific industry media e.g. AusIMM Bulletin, MEI, International Mining, investor community publication, sustainability journal etc pending copyright.
• Publicity of CEEC Medal winner in CEEC media releases, CEEC newsletters and on CEEC’s web site.
• Use of CEEC Medal winner’s logo on letterhead, newsletters, web site, in investor bulletins, etc by the company whose employee/s win the CEEC Medal.
• Global recognition as the outstanding contributor/s of beneficial energy-efficient comminution strategies in that year.
• Presentation of the CEEC Medal at a prestigious industry event, acknowledging the Medal winners and their work.

About CEEC

CEEC is a not-for-profit global company whose mission is to accelerate knowledge transfer in the field of energy-efficient comminution (crushing and grinding). CEEC aims to raise awareness of beneficial alternative comminution strategies with the objective of improving earnings, achieving lower processing costs and gaining energy productivity in the mining sector.

CEEC is the acronym for the Coalition for Energy-Efficient Comminution. CEEC was established by a visionary group of mining industry leaders, who recognised the need to provide a platform for effective communication of the latest technical findings on efficient comminution practices. Extensive research and improved engineering design has established that a range of improved blasting, crushing and grinding techniques may lower project costs, and carbon footprint. These include relatively straight forward strategies such as removing waste material before size reduction, a better combination of grinding technologies and targeting larger grind sizes where mineralogy allows.

CEEC, a global not-for-profit company, is funded wholly by sponsorship from the mineral industry - Anglo American, Barrick Gold, Beacon Events, CITIC-HIC, Antofagasta Minerals, Gekko Systems, Ausenco, Glencore Technology, Outotec, Orica, New Gold Inc, Derrick Corporation, Metso, AMIRA International, MMG, Weir Minerals, Multotec Ltd, and Antofagasta Minerals.
