Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering

The Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering, within the Faculty of Applied Science at UBC, was established in 2006 in order to transform the Department of Mining Engineering to become one of the world’s leading mining schools.

The establishment of the Institute has been associated with an existing contribution from Teck Cominco & Parters and a matching of funds from the Government of British Columbia. The intent of this project was to renovate and provide system upgrades to the existing Coal & Mineral Processing Laboratory (CMPL) as well as the creation of a small building adjacent to CMPL to address the Institute’s space shortfalls.
