On 18th of February 2021 the recomine-project TERZinn starts as the first of currently eight selected projects of the first recomine-call. Over the next three years, a digital underground measurement system will be developed and tested in the historic Ehrenfriedersdorf mine site. Newly developed sensors will record current information from the incoming mine water and pass it on to a modular water treatment system, which will then decide how heavily the water needs to be treated depending on the water contamination (e.g. with Arsenic). The system will then be further developed for use in the Ore Mountains and around the world, and will sustainably improve water quality in many mining regions.
Young Mining Professionals (YMP) is a growing international association of mining professionals based in major mining centers across the world, that share the goal of advancing the global profile and leadership of the mining and exploration industry. YMP was established to assist participants in obtaining the skills, support and knowledge to successfully advance their careers, develop a network of contacts within the industry, and identify career and mining-related investment opportunities.* The new YMP Switzerland section was founded in early 2021 and started its activities with a Lunch'n Learn webinar format. Philipp Büttner, coordinator and co-founder of recomine, had the honor to give the first presentation in the very first session on recomine and re-mining.
