Risk comes in many forms. The global recession led many governments in stable mining territories to increase taxes and royalties, at a time when miners face reduced commodity prices.
Increased pressure from environmental activists has resulted in additional government regulation and delays for new mining projects.
Political instability in parts of the world increases the need for security at remote mining projects, while the spectre of government seizure of projects and assets always looms.
The Mining Business Risks Summit examines these challenges and brings together a team of policy experts who will discuss how you and your company can successfully navigate the full field of risk facing the mining industry.
If you are involved in the mining industry and need a clearer understanding of the impact and evolution of risk in the mining industry, join us in Vancouver, Canada, December 5-7, 2010, for this premier conference.
