The Mining Institute of Scotland (MIS) is a professional body for the advancement of all perspectives of minerals (including oil and gas) and mining. Its objectives are to promote and develop every aspect of minerals and mining science, engineering and technology and this is achieved by providing information and related services, and influencing key opinion formers in government, industry, academia, the public and professions.
