CIM MES Montréal, in collaboration with McGill COSMO and CIM Montréal, are pleased to present:

Janice Zinck

Director, Green Mining Innovation, Natural Resources Canada
President, Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum

 

who will deliver a presentation on:

Transforming Risk into Opportunity

 

Abstract: The mining industry is fraught with many and varied risks covering the entire spectrum:

• business risks, including pressure to increase a cost benefit ratio with declining ore grade;
• resource replacement in a resource stressed world;
• environmental, social issues that continue to evolve;
• capital cost overruns that appear to be inevitable;
• aging management talent with limited experience personnel to replace them; and
• access to capital in a risk adverse world.

On top of these traditional concerns are:

• the recent threats surrounding cybersecurity and digitization; and
• the astonishing possibilities from innovation in an industry where status quo is the norm.

Can we transform how we manage risk and more importantly can we turn these risks into opportunity?

For a sector that is frequently labelled as “traditional” and risk-adverse this transformation will require a strategic paradigm shift to re-examine risk approaches. How can this, ultimately, lead to increased productivity, lower costs , and stronger community confidence?

The presentation will explore the potential for transformation and examine opportunities for strategic change.
