Converting Waste to Revenue
with Allan Cramm, VP Innovation & Development, Anaconda Mining
January 16, 2019 | 2:00 – 2:30 PM EST
Anaconda Mining has successfully turned its mine waste into a saleable construction aggregates product and is now working with Memorial University, Grenfell Campus, to create an agricultural product from its mineral processing waste, providing sustainable revenue sources beyond just gold mining.
This webinar will change the way one views mining. It has been demonstrated that mining can be a sustainable industry that can provide the many minerals and products needed to improve the world we live in. The collaboration with peers, colleagues and researchers has demonstrated there is more to a mine than meets the eye.
This webinar provides participants with current updates on various initiatives that our company has undertaken to extract value from waste!
