This webinar will discuss how the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated technological advances in the mining sector and the potential economic, social and environmental impacts resulting from the adoption of these technologies.
Questions to be discussed include:
- What are the tax implications resulting from a more autonomous and capital-intensive mining sector?
- How are mining suppliers positioning themselves in order to benefit from the technological advances and what are the opportunities local for start-ups?
- How can mining companies gain/retain their social license to operate among mining impacted communities if there are less local employment opportunities at the operations?
- How can the Andean region best navigate the technological transition the mining sector is experiencing?
