The first Mining and the Environment International Conference, Sudbury’95, was over 20 years ago, with over 2000 professionals having now attended the six conferences in the series. The Sudbury 2019 organising committee invite you to join them in Sudbury June 23rd-28th2019 to participate in the seventh conference of the series.
Building on the successes of the previous Sudbury conferences, the Mining and the Environment International Conference will bring together technical experts from the industry, government and academia interested in the environmental aspects of mining. Participants are coming from around the world to address mine, land and waterways rehabilitation, biomining, waste management and related environmental protection issues.
The conference, co-hosted by Laurentian University School of the Environment, the Goodman School of Mines and the Canadian Land Reclamation Association, will be held at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario. As a key component of the conference, the trade show exhibition will feature many innovative developments and displays relevant to the mining industry. The tradeshow highlights a blend of industry, association and academic exhibits from all aspects of the mining and environmental community.
The program includes a focus on the needs of indigenous communities, closure planning & risk, physical mine hazard rehabilitation, the advantages of brownfield site development and sustainable mining.
The exhibition will be fully integrated with the conference activities held in close proximity to the main meeting rooms. Located in the Alumni Hall at Laurentian University, the exhibition area will serve as a meeting place for breaks and an afternoon social event.
