IOM3 celebrating 150th anniversary in 2019

Posted by IOM3 - Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining on 8 January 2019

The Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining celebrates 150 years with a host of events for 2019.

The story of the Institute began in the mid-18th Century when local institutes were looking to improve their knowledge and professional practice began to spring up. In 1869, the first national institution in the field was founded – the Iron and Steel Institute – with others quickly following behind including the Institution of Mining Engineers in 1889 and the Institution of Mining and Metallurgy in 1892. As new materials like plastics and specialisms such as mine electrical engineering appeared and came into use, further national institutes and societies were founded during the following decades.
