February 3 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
British Columbia is a centre of excellence for mineral exploration and mining. Today, Environment, Social and Governance best practices are as important as geology is to finding and developing a deposit. Responsible mineral exploration is the first step to responsible mining and supply chains. Join us for a conversation with leaders in ESG to discuss trends, economic interests and the relevancy of ESG best practices to explorers making today’s discoveries.
