:: Inauguration of the International Mining and Minerals Association

A message from IMMM/IMMa

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to let you know about the inauguration of a new organization called the International Mining and Minerals Association (IMMa), which has been formed by the four minerals divisions of the IoM3. In 2002, when the IMM merged with the Institute of Materials to form the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3), four minerals divisions were created - Applied Earth Sciences, Mining Technology, Mineral Processing & Extractive Metallurgy and Petroleum & Drilling Engineering - and this unfortunate division of the IMM membership led to a loss of identity within the larger organization. In order to counter this identity loss, the minerals divisions have worked together to create IMMa, which will deal with Institute business that is common to the four divisions and which will become their face to the outside world

IMMa officially came into existence in January of this year and one of its first tasks is to create a comprehensive membership database. With the original IMM/IoM merger and those that have followed, divisional affiliations have been lost from IoM3 membership records. It is essential that we reestablish an up-to-date and accurate database for IMMa so that we can communicate with our members and we are asking for a few minutes of your time to help us with this formidable task.

Please would you carry out the following two simple actions, which will take very little time:

Firstly, click on the link below, which will take you to a simple on-line form that asks for your name, e-mail address and preferred division affiliation. Submitting this form will add your details to the membership database. Please be assured that this information will be kept strictly confidential and used only for communications between IMMa and yourself.


Secondly, please forward this link to all of your colleagues who you know or believe are already members of the IoM3 minerals divisions, or to those you think could potentially become members. By using the chain-letter principle, we hope to be able to capture a comprehensive membership list for IMMa. For this to work, however, it is essential that you pass this message on to others, so that the chain is not broken.

Thank you for taking the time to help us with this task and our apologies if you receive this e-mail from more than one source. We will be touch again in a few weeks to let you know how successful this initiative has been.

On behalf of the IMMa Committee.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. John Monhemius: chairman, IMMa
