Regional views from Quebec, China, Africa, Latin America, Indonesia and Mongolia will be shared by a diverse group of experts, discussing business risks within the mining industry.

Dominic Halahan, Head of Mining Events for CRU Group says: "This is a unique opportunity to discuss 'above the ground' mining business risks and their interrelationship. Delegates from mining companies, governments and other important stakeholders will discuss the social and political risks derived from building and operating mines to better understand how to mitigate these complex and interrelated challenges.  The most fascinating event I attend by far!"
