SME grows Thought Leaders podcast series

By |  May 29, 2015

The Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) added new installments to its Thought Leaders podcast series. According to SME, the series provides a forum for mining industry leaders to discuss their views on important topics regarding the industry.

Additions to the podcast series include panelists from the SME Annual Conference & Expo’s keynote session, “The Mine of the Future: Forecasting opportunities and challenges for the global mining industry,” this past February.

During one of the podcasts, Harry Conger, president of the Americas Division at Freeport-McMoRan and co-chairman of the “Creating Global Prosperity: The Campaign for Mining” initiative, discusses the technical, social and political aspects that are key to a successful operation.

During another podcast, Barry Hudson, director of aggregates for northern Europe for HeidelbergCement, talks about the challenges of working in an industry undergoing fundamental changes, as well as mining expertise and skill sets required for fluctuating markets. He also touches on environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility.

In conjunction with its goal to provide a growing library of mining industry offerings for members and non-members, SME will be regularly adding podcasts to the series.
