About the Expert Committees

The technical-scientific work of the GDMB is carried out in its specialist committees. Their members meet regularly to discuss the latest technical and scientific findings in their fields. In addition to a lecture program, topic-related plant tours round off the meetings. The current and future work of the technical committees is determined in internal meetings. Working groups are formed at short notice to deal with individual problems. Their number and focus are variable and are adapted to current requirements.

Heraeus Precious Metals
Heraeusstraße 12-14, 63450 Hanau, Germany

Program

EC-Head: Dr.-Ing. Eric Becker

Due to the increasingly widespread use of special and precious metals in the industrial and consumer sectors, these metals are of great importance in terms of raw material deposits and their extraction, refining processes and extreme purities, areas of application, and recycling of returned materials. In addition to the classic precious and refractory metals, the focus is increasingly on the rare earth and semiconductor metals and their compounds used in electronics/optics and regenerative energy production.

YOUNG MEMBERS WORKING GROUP

AKJM-Head’s: Dipl.-Ing. Lukas Manthey, Niklas Hartung (Clausthal), Jasmin Groß (Aachen), Patrick Reimann (Freiberg)

The Young Members Working Group (AKJM) aims to integrate younger GDMB members (young engineers and students) more strongly into the activities of the Society and to involve them in its tasks. Furthermore, a higher participation of young members in events of the technical committees and district groups is aimed at. The AKJM conducts its own continuing education seminars. The working group is represented by contact persons at many universities. With its activities, the GDMB wants to present itself primarily to students and young engineers.
In addition, we want to promote the engineering profession. Through company visits, a realistic insight into the diverse activities of geologists, mining engineers, processors, metallurgists and related professions is to be given. Job prospects and career opportunities will be presented in short lectures. Young and experienced colleagues report on their experiences and give tips for choosing a profession and a successful career. Excursions and seminars provide additional opportunities to make personal contacts and clarify further questions.
