M.Earth.Sci. Earth Sciences (Geochemistry)
Sul completed an Integrated Masters degree in Earth Sciences (MEarthSci) at the University of Manchester specializing in Geochemistry. A keen interest in Economic Geology and Ore Mineralogy led him to return to Manchester to complete a Ph.D. in Environmental Geochemistry and Geomicrobiology, studying cobalt, nickel and manganese mineralogy and biogeochemistry in lateritic deposits. He has taught undergraduates Geochemistry, Mineral Deposits, Ore Mineralogy and Microscopy, mentored Ph.D. and MSc students and performed experiments at the UK Synchrotron at Harwell.
His most recent research has included biosynthesis of magnetic nanomaterials used in industrial waste remediation and metal recovery.
Studies on the applications of graphene are multiplying due to its properties as a lightweight, strong, porous and electrically conductive material.
Some devices require semiconductor materials with elements from the “metalloid staircase” (located across groups 13, 14 and 15 of the periodic table).
There are numerous types of asteroid classified based on spectral analyses of their surfaces.
This article discusses the ore minerals used in semiconducting.
This article discusses the vehicles that are best equipped to be used for mining in space.
This article is an introduction to quantum minerals.
Rheology encompasses the science of deformation and how matter flows over time based on the mechanical properties of the material and whether it behaves in a brittle, elastic or viscous fashion.
Acid mine drainage (AMD) is a significant source of water pollution in areas surrounding current and historic metal and coal mine sites.
In this article, we explore the ways in which water contaminated by mining can be purified and altered in order to make it drinkable.
The use of automated precision-engineered technology in mining, from hardware such as drilling-rigs and ventilation systems.
This product profile outlines the Ramsey Series 30 Belt Scale System.
ZEISS Xradia 510 Versa x-ray microscope advances industry and science to address emerging research challenges.

Prof. James Tour
AZoMining speaks with James Tour from Rice University about his team's exciting method that has the very real potential to recover valuable REE from three types of waste; electronic waste, coal fly ash and bauxite residue.
Craig Liddicoat from Flinders University speaks to AZoMining about his team's work on effective rehabilitation in post-mining ecosystems and whether it can set up a predictable trajectory of recovery. We also ask why ecosystem recovery is important in mining operations and the current limitations af
In this interview, Andrew Somers from SciAps Australia talks to AZoMining about the new Geochem Pro application for the Z range of handheld elemental analyzers, and the improvements that have been made to their technology over the last year.
