New Perspectives on Mine Closure

June 10 - July 19

Mine closure is an issue of growing importance for mining companies, the communities that host operations, Indigenous peoples, and governments with regulatory oversight of closure planning. In the coming years, the world’s top miners are expected to spend over $50 billion (USD) closing mines and managing legacy sites. For many stakeholders and rightsholders, there is a growing expectation that successful closure plans will go beyond remediation and short-term technical solutions to consider the complex socio-economic aspects of closure. Best practice planning is now expected to include measures that support a just transition for workers, communities, and governments as the jobs, taxes, royalties, and philanthropic investments associated with producing mines diminish and then disappear. In this course presented by EGBC in Partnership with BRIMM Mining Education at UBC, participants will examine the social and environmental dimensions of mine closure.
