LOOKING FORWARD - HOW TO BEST MANAGE RISKS IMPACTING MINERAL, ENERGY AND MINING SUPPLY CHAINS
Join us, register at no cost. On Tuesday January 10, 2023 hear many industry leading experts discuss the extractive industries' efforts to manage and de-risk geological, technical, technology, human and financial capital and regulatory issues - with ever-changing and varied ESG, Social License regulations and expectations and macro-economic, geopolitical and jurisdictional risks - as they seek investment and to attract human and investment capital to finance exploration, development, and operation of critical, precious, industrial and construction minerals.
As the world is reading and reacting to headline stories everyday about the electric vehicle revolution and transition to 'clean energy' as industries worldwide, beyond mining adopt cleaner technologies, a consequence is the need to mine more, in response to the exponential growth in demand for critical minerals. Meanwhile, many other vital minerals needed in our society everyday, the quiet workhorses, which many of us are even unaware of where they come from, are also seeing explosive growth in demand. The issues and risks involved to grow supply often challenge the opportunity, as miners, financiers, investors and owners struggle to adapt and adopt to complex rules and expectations. This symposium, like NY SME's first and second virtual Thought Leaders in Mining events, we hope will help many understand what is ahead, as the mining industry seeks to finance, explore, develop and sustainably operate and support the world's mineral, mining and energy supply chains.
Tune into this event, that will address this, and why current metals markets and supply chains are strained and new mining projects face delays. Register to hear many experienced experts discuss issues, risks and trends, including efforts to meet ESG targets and the impact of many policies on exploration, mining and financing the junior mining and operating mining, mineral and energy sectors.
If your interest is in the green economy, electric vehicles, net zero, battery metals, energy storage and transition and mining and metals in general register to receive updates. Share the registration link with industry leaders, owners, miners, board members, investors, policy makers, stakeholders, communities, financiers, consumers and others interested to learn about possible, potential pitfalls in mining.
The speakers are world leading industry, finance, technical, legal advisors who evaluate, de-risk and fund mining projects, and include officials from the Government of Germany, Province of Quebec and the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) who develop and advance policies that impact and support global mineral supply chains. Hear their views.
Also hear senior officers from the National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) discuss new opportunities for public-private partnerships with extractive industries to leverage their experience and expertise with mining technologies being used in extreme environments and remote locations, similar to conditions in the lunar environment.
