Constant Change is the New Normal

Don't get left behind

The pressure has never been higher on miners to lower their environmental impact while delivering more of the metals and minerals the world desperately needs. The pace of change in the industry has been exponential – but more change is ahead.

Building on The Northern Miner’s successful Progressive Mine Forum, Canadian Mining Journal’s Suppliers Symposium will connect delegates with the industry leaders on the forefront of these changes. Interact with experts tackling mining’s big challenges – like decarbonization – and specialists who can shed light on the essential costing piece of the puzzle.
