What does the life cycle of a mine look like? What is the scale of operations, how long do they last, and what different environmental impacts can occur? Hear from our panelists, a variety of actors working in the mining industry, for an engaging primer on the mining process. This understanding is crucial for you to engage with the policy debate that will take place throughout the rest of conference in the mining stream.
