The mineral exploration landscape continuously changes but some curves are tighter than others. Change is at the forefront now as explorers pivot to advance projects in a Covid-19 influenced environment, but strategic changes are also required to accommodate factors such as shifting commodity foci to battery and critical metals, the use and application of real time, down-hole and big data exploration technologies, changing societal expectations influencing ethical metals and NIMBYism, and more. This session on “Leading through Change” will explore several themes that are impacting our industry today.
