conference is to promote a closer relationship between
the space and mining sectors. The intent is to allow
mining experts to network with space scientists and
engineers, to share knowledge, and to foster
focus of the conference will be solid planet sciences.
Topics will be limited to the science and technology of
exploring and exploiting resources on Earth as well as
on other planetary bodies, such as the moon, Mars,
asteroids, comets, etc.
and Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium will be held
jointly with the Space Resources Roundtable (SRR) in conjunction with CIM for
2013. For additional information on CIM

Leading by example
The wide-ranging, thoughtful and candid discussion in this year’s signature plenary session touched on the struggles leaders face today, which include skittish investors and a sometimes antagonistic public. Based on the remarks and pedigrees of the influential speakers involved, strong leaders require courage, self-confidence and an overarching optimism.
Don’t be surprised by the array of space rovers on the exhibition floor this year, it is here for good reason. This is the first time the Planetary and Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium (PTMSS) is being held in conjunction with the CIM Convention.
Space Miners Meet in Toronto, Again!
The small but slowly growing international community of asteroid and planetary miners touched down in Toronto for the second time in three months as part of the 4th Annual Joint Conference of the Planetary and Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium (PTMSS) and the Space Resources Roundtable (SRR), which was held in conjunction with the Canadian Institute of Mining (CIM) Annual Conference (CIM2013) in Toronto, ON from May 5th - 8th.
Submissions are solicited from those involved in
any aspect of space or terrestrial mining
research, or development of technologies related
to the three major themes.
Submissions may be abstracts, full papers with
abbreviated abstracts, posters, or technology
Abstract Submission Deadline: November 30, 2012.
