Presenters will include the Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State for Science and Technology, and the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Labour, as well as executives from Natural Resources Canada, Barrick, Cameco, Rio Tinto, Franco-Nevada, Planetary Resources, CRC Ore, and Scotiabank. Presentations and a panel discussion will consider the importance of innovation to the future of Canadian mining.

 

Dialogue will focus on developing the innovation agenda that Canada’s mining industry needs to implement in order to remain sustainable in the face of serious challenges such as declining ore reserves and grades, increased costs, increasingly deep and remote mines, and an imminent labour shortage. In the words of one presenter, to remain competitive this industry will have to “innovate or die.”
