Emerging risks regarding raw materials
Updated: May 2
Satarla greatly enjoys working with many different stakeholders in the world of raw materials. This includes explorers, developers, mining operators, those who specialise in what happens after the formal life of mine has been reached, communities living close to operations, environmental experts, recyclers, experts in circularity, investors, governments, and customers of those raw materials produced.... to name but a few!
Integrated risk management is the key to understanding how all of these different perspectives fit together. What is seen as an opportunity for one individual, may be the result of a threat to someone else. This system, or network, is incredibly important for us to understand if we are to ensure that the provision of raw materials as needed by the global population is achieved in the most responsible way possible.
Dr Sarah Gordon was very lucky to join an excellent line up for an online conference hosted by the Geological Survey of Queensland and University of Queensland Sustainable Minerals Institute. The discussion focused on what the risks might be for the provision of raw materials.
The recording can be found below (with Sarah beginning her talk at 1:50:00). The slides used by Sarah can be downloaded for free below also.
