CIM MES: United Kingdom Chapter

The CIM MES United Kingdom Chapter is the first established chapter of CIM MES, a Society within CIM, in the island nation in northwestern Europe Region. It strives to assist the various mining and energy communities in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland) and various European Regions in building opportunities for professional growth. The UK Chapter was established in 2020 to offer an educational platform in the United Kingdom for professional development, networking, sharing best practices, and facilitating collaborative efforts within these industries.

With a continually growing membership, our mandate is threefold – INFORMATION, EDUCATION, and NETWORKING.


Management and Economics Society

The Management and Economics Society of CIM was originally formed as the Mineral Economics Committee of CIM in 1973. Then, in 1992, it became a fully-fledged Society. The Mineral Economics Society changed its name to the Management and Economics Society of CIM in May, 2004 in order to encompass others in the mining and energy industry sectors who may not have a technical background.

MES provides a home within the CIM organization for industry professionals whose focus is economics, finance and management. Members are from all areas of professional endeavour, including: senior management, geology, engineering, metallurgy, environmental, law, accounting, taxation, banking, investments, academia, governmental, human resources, social development, consultancy, insurance, and many more. All are welcome!

The Management and Economics Society sponsors various educational and social events across Canada and internationally that provide industry professionals with the opportunity to both network and share experiences, insights and ideas on topics relating to the economics, management and financial aspects of the business. Keep up to date by checking us out often at:

The Society also provides financial support to various university educational initiatives and programs.

CIM MES has played a leading role in the development of standards and definitions used in the mining industry as well as supporting the publication of several CIM reference volumes. Specifically, MES has taken a leadership position within CIM on important industry issues through the Ore Reserves Committee and the Mineral Property Valuation Committee (CIMVal).
