The publications were presented at a panel discussion chaired by ICMM President Anthony Hodge and featuring AngloGold Ashanti CEO, Mark Cutifani.
“We believe the mining industry’s performance on sustainable development issues has changed significantly in recent times. At the same time, as industry leaders we also acknowledge that there are areas where we have some way to go before we, and our societies, can be satisfied with our performance,” said Mark Cutifani.
"We must ensure that the costs, benefits and risks of mining are well understood by all stakeholders, and that all accept their respective responsibilities in this regard. The recent tragic events in South Africa and the widespread strikes – which are affecting my company as well as others – serve to illustrate the absolute importance of getting this right”, he said.
Magnus Ericsson, Raw Materials Group, and Alan Roe, Oxford Policy Management, presented the two studies at the panel discussion.
