Minerals are a critical and finite resource. In an era of limited supply and increasing demand, lawyers are needed who understand important and emerging issues related to the development and exploitation of mineral resources. This in-person conference is designed not just for experienced and aspiring mining lawyers, but also for environmental lawyers, public lands lawyers, corporate lawyers, and other professionals who work with companies and other organizations that operate in or interact with the mining industry. The program will cover current and developing legal opportunities and challenges that arise over the course of the mining life cycle, from exploitation, project financing, permitting, and ESG, to operations, post-mining reclamation, and new frontiers.
