Center for Environmentally Sustainable Mining (CESM) 

The CESM develops research and educational initiatives that enhance the environmental sustainability of mining. CESM is guided by a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) of industry and consulting professionals who identify issues of concern to the hard-rock mining and rock products industries. The CESM model emphasizes collaboration with industry partners through industry-academic research cooperatives. CESM facilitates broad cross-campus collaboration between University of Arizona academic partners from diverse colleges and schools. To learn more about CESM, please go directly to:
