  • What steps can the industry take toward breaking down barriers and being more open to real collaboration and sharing information?
  • How can miners build and integrate an effective digital strategy into their operations?
  • How can the risk of a tailings storage facility failure be managed from the outset?
  • Case study: Stillwater’s Good Neighbor Agreement: How has this taken shape and adapted to the needs of the community surrounding the Stillwater & East Boulder mine?
