Supporting students at Camborne School of Mines

Our director, Tom Clifford, presented a cheque to the Camborne School of Mines, part of the University of Exeter, to sponsor their football team

A Camborne alumnus who played for school’s team himself, Tom presented the £600 cheque at the first Cornish Mining Sundowner of the year, held at the County Arms in Truro. He is pictured (centre) presenting a cheque for £600 to club treasurer Jake Dowling and footballing mentor Steve Pendray.

The Sundowner event was organised by Barry Wills (of MEI) – a world authority on mineral processing who documents its social and technological history. Barry blogs about news and his views on 21st Century mineral processing. Read the full blog about the Sundowner event.

From Camborne to Canada – our work in mining

The mining industry is a major area of work for the Riventa team.

  • Locally we’re working with Exeter University on the Mine Smart Grid Project, contributing pump efficiency measurement work. Part of this collaborative research project is taking place at a test mine, to verify the accuracy of the Poirson method against a conventional flow meter.
  • Tom Clifford recently delivered a paper at this year’s MEMO conference in Canada on the use of thermodynamic pump testing for maintenance and energy efficiency in the mining industry.
  • We are working with MIRARCO in Canada on HAC performance measurement. MIRARCO is one of the innovative research partners of choice for mining – advancing safe, productive and sustainable practices.
