2nd Annual Water Management in Mining Summit
Examining Cost Reductions and Community Engagement through Technical Water Management Development
Due to the capital intensity of mine operations, the need to manage costs, vigorous environmental regulations, and the ever-important need for sustainability; effective water management strategies in the mining space can help to ensure efficiency and long-term cost reductions. IQPC will bring together mining companies, site operators, regulators, and engineers to share best practices and their expertise in the space.
The U.S. has recently undergone a resurgence of enthusiasm for mining activities. Many believe mine operations and environmental sustainability to be juxtaposed; however, when taken into account from the earliest stages, they can work hand-in-hand to provide greater efficiencies and improve overall operations, while complying with regulatory agencies and the needs of ‘neighbor.’
IQPC’s 2nd Annual Water Management in Mining Summit will reconvene the community that was so actively engaged in the inaugural summit last July in Denver. We will focus on issues as important as mine-remediation, mine-closure, regulations, community outreach and engagement, smart water policies, cost reduction principles and methods, tailings, active and passive water treatment systems, and many other challenging issues the mining community faces today.
Join us this July 29-31 in Denver, CO in order to:
1. Network and learn from peers in the industry facing similar challenges and constraints
2. Learn from thought-leaders how to better integrate overall operations in order to increase efficiencies and ensure cost-reductions
3. Better understand the role that water treatment, mine design, acid mine drainage, and other important water based programs will have on mine operations
“I though the summit was very timely for me and addressed issues I deal with pretty much all the time. It was very well moderated and the venue was very good for stimulating conversation and exchange of ideas.” - Robert Miller, Asarco
“In general, I found the summit extremely informative. Personally, as a relative "new-comer" to the industry, this gave me a tremendous appreciation for the challenges and issues which face the mining industry today.” - Paul Keough, AW Chesterton
“Industry related, exciting, cutting edge and interactive information and experience exchange.” – Rudi Aschenborn, Jones & Wagener
“Well targeted audience and intimate atmosphere that was great for networking.” - Mohammed Ali, Hatch
