Keynote Wednesday

What keeps you up at night?

For every mining executive, leader, and forward-thinking professional, there are common concerns that disrupt our sleep as we strive for strategic change in our organizations and the global mining industry. We are now coming together as an industry to strategize, pool resources and lay the foundation needed to make significant progress on key challenges to ignite the future we want for mining. Safety, energy, sustainability, productivity, social license – what is being done about them? What progress have we made?
