Ish Grewal is an accomplished extractive metallurgist with over 25 years of experience in the metallurgical and mineral processing industry. His experience lies in research and development, mineral processing and hydrometallurgical separation, extraction and metal recovery systems.
Mr. Grewal is the founder and past President of Met-Solve Laboratories which is now one of Canada's most respected metallurgical laboratories and research centers.
Mr. Grewal obtained his bachelor's degree in Metals and Materials Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC). He went on to complete his master's degree, also at UBC, specializing in hydrometallurgy with a focus on high pressure and temperature leaching systems.
After completing his graduate studies, he spent 4 years conducting hydrometallurgical research at UBC, in areas such as gold-cyanide and base metal leaching systems, high temperature/pressure leaching processes and various ion-exchange and solvent extraction methods. He then joined Placer Dome as a Research Metallurgist at their research and testing laboratory in Vancouver. His responsibilities included metallurgical testing for feasibility and pre-feasibility studies, operating complete grind-gravity-flotation and leaching pilot plants and testing cyanide destruction and recovery technologies.
In 1998, he joined Knelson Concentrators, now a division of FLSmidth, where he built and managed the Knelson Research & Technology Centre. He coordinated research and development projects within Knelson as well as at various universities and research organizations around the world.
