Three Steps to an Affordable Zero Waste Mine Other events...
Waste minimisation and byproduct reuse is a growing challenge for the global mining industry, driven by investor, regulatory, and community pressures as well as internal corporate and industry-wide goals. Responding to this challenge requires mining companies to develop strategies and technology to reduce waste generation, energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions, and increase byproduct reuse. These strategies are being developed within a context of depleting, lower grade, and more complex reserves, and a volatile market, with social license to operate positioned as one of the biggest operational risks given recent tailings dam failures.

This online panel discussion will examine the step changes required for zero waste mining to become an affordable industry reality.

Panellists include representatives from mining companies, not-for profit organisations, regulators, consultants, and research and training providers to explore zero waste mining from multiple angles.
Speaker(s) Felicia Lee Kiely (Senior Research Scientist, Alcoa), Ian Rollins (State Manager WA, Greening Australia), Mike Rowe (Director General, Department of Water and Environment Regulation), Nicole Roocke (CEO, Minerals Research Institute WA), Talitha Santini (Senior Lecturer, UWA School of Agriculture and Environment / UWA Mining Innovation Network)
