Keynote Panel: Changing the mindset - addressing the mineral sector’s image problem

The mineral industry faces a challenge:  a longstanding negative public image, despite the importance of minerals in our everyday lives. When trust is measured, mining frequently ranks last compared to other sectors. Building trust and articulating value can evolve the sector’s brand. When trust is an issue, transparency is key. Miners need to get better at articulating the financial and nonfinancial value they bring to communities and investors, beyond merely meeting regulatory expectations. Creating and communicating a bigger bolder vision of legacy beyond life of mine can demonstrate a company’s societal commitment.

This session tackles how to shift that perception. We will explore why the industry has this image, and what steps mineral companies can take to communicate their positive contributions and address environmental and social concerns. 

Key points discussed in this session include:
• Understanding the perception. What are the common misconceptions about the industry?
• Building reputation: strategies for proactive communication. How can mining companies effectively highlight their efforts in sustainability and social responsibility?
• Stakeholder engagement: building trust and collaboration with communities and environmental groups.
• Exploring long-term strategies to secure a positive public perception for the mineral sector

Keynote Fireside Chat: The war below: lithium, copper, and the global battle to power our lives

The world is moving towards replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy. But building electric vehicles, solar panels, and millions of other devices requires digging more mines. Critical minerals are vital to many sustainable technologies, and the competition for them is intensifying.

Ernest Scheyder is best-selling author of The War Below. In this interview he will cover some of the key themes covered his book such as
• Nations which aspire to energy independence are ever more intertwined:
• A hedge fund manager's attempt to revive rare earths mining in California needs Chinese expertise
• International reliance on Africa's mining sector persists despite concern over child labour. 
• A proposed lithium mine in Nevada would help global car manufacturers slash their dependence on fossil fuels but developing that mine could cause the extinction of a flower found nowhere else on the planet.

As the mining industry attempts to predict how the geopolitics of resource extraction will unfold, this interview provides a glimpse of the industry giants, researchers, and policymakers at the forefront of the new energy wars.

Keynote Panel: Reimagining recycling – how can it become truly transformative (rather than just scrap metal recycling)?

Recycling has huge potential for the mining industry. As of where the technology and capacity are now for processing harder-to-recycle metals, gold is the most recycled, with nickel, silver, and copper not far behind. The EU relies more heavily on secondary production using recycled metals when compared to other global regions.

Innovation in the recycling sector that could allow lithium to be recycled more efficiently could prove to be a game-changer for the electrical driving industry. Because the batteries needed for fuelling cars are quite large, a huge amount of lithium is required by the industry.

This panel will examine
• Innovations in upstream recycling
• Innovations in downstream recycling
• Reviewing the strong environmental regulatory support in the Western World
• The impact of recycling on a lower carbon footprint
• Will black mass recycling become a reality?
• How does recycling link into mining value chains?

Panel: How circular thinking can transform tailings management into a safer and more profitable opportunity

As investors and society more broadly become increasingly stringent in their attitudes towards environmental and ecological stewardship, new ways of thinking about tailings are necessary. Principles taken from the circular economy have the potential to unlock not only more sustainable, but safer and more profitable pathways to mitigating mine-waste. 

The past 10 years have seen more tailings dams built than
in any previous decade. Today, safe storage of tailings is a key focus for stakeholders who are demanding miners do more to eliminate the failures that can devastate local communities and the environment, and cost billions to fix. With over 200 billion tonnes of existing tailings under management and an additional 40 billion to 50 billion
tonnes expected in the next five years, this is a critical risk to
manage.

This panel of experts will debate and discuss the most promising opportunities including: 
• Reprocessing tailings to extract further valuable materials, increasing efficiency and reducing overall waste whilst taking into consideration site-specific technical challenges such as impurities, aging, particle size and water content  
• Effective and comprehensive ore mapping and scanning to identify the highest grades for extraction, reducing the overall volume of waste 
• Transform tailings into other industriously useful materials to be used outside of the mining industry

Breakfast Briefing: Where the rubber hits the road. EU Critical Raw Materials update – What has been the feedback from the industry and what are the next steps in transforming from policy making into execution?

The EU's Critical Raw Materials Act recognizes critical minerals as essential for the energy transition, paving the way for a surge in European exploration. This Act reflects the urgency of achieving net-zero by 2050 and the steps it is going to take to get there. It should help increase and diversify the EU’s critical raw materials supply; strengthen circularity including recycling and support research and innovation on resource efficiency and the development of substitutes.

However, there are challenges ahead:
The US Inflation Reduction Act subsidies will make it two to three times more expensive to build a European battery materials refinery in Europe than in the US. And China’s recent export bans (increasing by four times including controls on gallium, germanium, and graphite) and “aggressive investment” has caused a 50% drop in certain battery material prices.

Key points discussed in this session include:
• How many new mines, processing facilities and recycling facilities are required and what are the plans to execute this?
• How on track is the EU on meeting the objectives of having 10% of strategic and critical minerals being mining locally by 2030 with the EU processing 40% of them and 25% of supply being attained 
• Speeding up permitting procedures – are new guidelines being met?
• How can investments be de-risked given the high failure fate of mining exploration?
• China and the US have the advantage of being individual countries - how can the nations of the EU collaborate better?
