Global views of mining from the “world’s mining capital”

Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 6, pp. 48-48
Gleason, William


PREVIEW:

During the 116th National Western Mining Conference and Exhibition in Denver, CO, the host city was often referred to as world’s mining capital, so it was fitting that the conference looked at the mining industry through a global lens.

In the current world economy, the mining industry must keep a sharp focus on such things as commodity prices and global supply and demand as well as local issues that can have a dramatic impact on a mine’s social license to operate. In short, companies should mine locally but think globally.

During the three-day conference at the Colorado Convention Center, a range of global and local issues that effect the industry were discussed. A record 1,144 people attended the conference.
