CIM Distinguished Lecturers Series - Whitehorse Branch Inaugural Event

Janice Zinck - Manager, Mine Waste Management and Processing Research Program, Natural Resources Canada  

Presentation title: Green Mining, an oxymoron or an opportunity

Canada is one of the largest mining nations in the world, producing more than 60 minerals and metals. The industry contributes
significantly to Canada’s economy specifically ~50 billion dollars annually to the GDP. Canadian mining companies recognize that their
social license to operate comes with responsibility for social and environmental stewardship, in Canada and abroad. While there has
been significant progress in this area, recent innovation opens the door to increased performance. There are proven technologies to
advance the environmental performance at various stages of development and implementation, while providing an economic
advantage. Green mining is just that; the development and application of technologies and processes that maximize environmental
performance while maintaining competiveness throughout the entire mining cycle from exploration through to post closure. This
presentation will discuss advances in green mining and showcase opportunities for greening the industry with a focus on resource
extraction, processing, decommissioning and closure.
