What’s the price going to be? What are your costs going to be? Who knows?


Global growth, particularly in China, is putting tremendous stress on the minerals and metals supply chain. Demand for urban infrastructure and housing, consumer goods and electronics requires materials that can only be derived from mining. A basic expectation for Canadian mining companies working around the world is to exceed the appropriate international safety, social and environmental norms and to properly engage with local stakeholders, while returning a suitable profit to shareholders.

Managing risk associated with climate change, political instability and venal governments adds further challenges to the normal range of geological, technical, human and market risks. In his presentation "The mining Industry's Global Challenge" Chris Twigge-Molecey will provide insight into the leadership and innovation being demonstrated by the Canadian Mining industry on this dynamic global landscape.
