The Midland Institute of Mining Engineers (MIMinE) celebrated its 150th year in 2007 and has a current membership of over 800 members in the UK and overseas. Most MIMinE members are also members of Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) but for some people, particularly those who are retired or who no longer need to retain their Engineering Council honors but do still wish to remain in touch with the Institute and with the industry then membership of MIMinE is now available.
The Institute has a Governing Board of some 25 to 30 members who willingly give some of their time to pursue our aims and objectives on behalf of the membership. The MIMinE Governing Board plan a full and diverse programme of technical meetings
We organise meetings that provide informative talks on diverse subjects relevant to materials and which contribute to continuing professional development for IOM3 members. Non-members are also welcome to attend.
At this time, all of our meetings are being held virtually inline with current restrictions. To see further details, please go to the Meetings tab above.
Midland Institute of Mining Engineers (MIMinE) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, registered Charity No 1177100 and is affiliated to the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
