Aims of the Society



The principal objective of the MES is to advance the science and practice of minerals engineering and allied sciences. This is achieved by:-

The Society organises symposia to discuss topics related to minerals engineering at least once a year and is supported in these events by kindred bodies such as the Coal Research Forum and the South Midlands Mining & Minerals Institute. It also promotes minerals engineering related conferences in the UK and worldwide and the Society currently provide the UK representative to the International Coal Preparation Congress organising committee who arrange an international conference every three years.

The Society holds a National Meeting each year in September to coincide with the Annual General Meeting

The Society's Groups arrange local technical meetings as well as social events such as dinner dances and golf days for members and guests.

Membership of the Society enables engineers with common interests to meet and exchange ideas and through membership employment has been facilitated both in the UK and overseas for those seeking a change.
