CIM Lunch Presentation Oct. 24th: Four decades, Four Continents, Four Copper Operations – a Personal Perspective on Constraints

The upcoming Canadian Institute of Management’s (CIM) lunch presentation will take place on Wednesday, October 24 at 11 AM at Room 100, 615 Booth St., Ottawa. An optional lunch buffet will be available for members and non-members for $10 (free for students) after the presentation.

Mr. Eltringham has been selected as a CIM Distinguished Lecturer for his innovative thinking and problem-solving techniques that brought the field of copper smelting to new levels of safety, production and development. The last forty years are reviewed using four different copper operations, on four continents, as examples of the changes in thinking approaches the industry has developed. The prioritization of effort and resources is a skill that has developed continuously and necessarily at an ever increasing rate. The copper smelting procedures of Zambian Copperbelt (Africa), Kennecott Mine (North America), Escondida Mine (South America) and Olympic Dam mining centre (Oceania) will be explained and compared to demonstrate how technology, luck, shrewd business acumen and a vision can produce outstanding results and be a great source of learning about the “game” of mining.

Please RSVP by October 22nd to Aartee Khandelwal, CIM Facility Coordinator by email ( or via phone (613-995-4146). For members travelling by car, paid parking can be found on Booth St. or a parking lot is available on Beech St./Rochester for approximately 5$.
