I am researching ways we can recover resources from abandoned mines while cleaning up the legacy of the past. The primary focus is on coarse and fine iron ore from Frances Creek, with research in other legacy mines and commodities as they arise. This engagement is aimed at improving the salability of the final product and converting existing waste into valuable material by identifying additional recoverable materials.
