ONTARIO – The Green Mining Conference represents a co-operative venture between Coleman Township, the Town of Cobalt, and the Town of Latchford. Plan on attending Sept. 12-14, 2018, to enjoy networking, local tours, and technical discussions on everything from brownfield mining, zero waste operations, and green mining in the historic Cobalt silver camp.
And if you can’t go, here are 10 things you will miss:
- The opportunity to join the conversation about the future of mining in the historic Cobalt mining district, a designated a Parks Canada National Historic Site.
- Presenters from the mining industry, government, and academia providing a depth and breadth of expertise to the topic of Green Mining in an intimate setting that fosters real interaction and networking between participants.
- An overview of the exciting Metal Earth project which will transform our understanding of the genesis of base and precious metal deposits during Earth’s evolution. This project will make Canada a world leader in metal endowment research and world-class innovator through open source delivery of new knowledge.
- Understanding how research and technology development related to mine waste could provide additional revenues, reduce the impact on the environment, restore aquatic health, and improve air quality.
- A look at how companies such as Goldcorp and Kirkland Lake Gold in Northern Ontario are implementing green energy in their operations to offset the high costs of connecting to the grid, to make underground mining safer, and to reduce carbon emissions substantially.
- How close is the mining industry to zero waste production? The importance of improving efficiencies in production, energy use, and sustainability, while mitigating and managing the impacts on the environment as well as advances in technology and ethical mining practices makes zero waste a possibility in the future.
- Discovering that deposits, such as ones in Cobalt, which were previously overlooked or ignored, are being reconsidered due to modern mining methods. Panelists will share their experiences and opportunities leading to the reduction of legacy mining impacts and the reworking of old sites with more current closure methodology.
- Learning how the mining industry is changing to include strategies for reducing or reusing waste, protecting the water, carbon-free energy, and a return to nature from the people who are implementing these impactful changes.
- An appreciation of the social rehabilitation required when the mining of an area is finished looking through the historical lens of Cobalt’s experience as a town and people.
- Enjoy locally sourced foods at the welcome reception and gala dinner prepared by the amazing Ali’s Grill and Bar staff and fabulous treats and a pretty box lunch created by The Orchard Cakes and Pastries.
