The webinars will discuss Dr. Ann Maest’s peer-reviewed report published in Minerals, which examines what is known and unknown about remining today: how renewable energy minerals can be recovered from mine waste deposits, its possible benefits and dangers, and practices that best reinforce gains and mitigate risks. The webinars will also present proposals for stronger policies and mandatory social and environmental regulations to safeguard the health, water, and livelihoods of people living in or nearby remining sites.
The webinar will be 30 minutes long. The chat will be open for Q&A. It will be recorded and posted for those unable to attend live. A second webinar focusing on US policy recommendations will take place on 17 January. More details here.
