Abstract Submission Deadline: October 1, 2012
Paper Submission Deadline: March 30, 2013

The purpose of the "Mining, Ethics and Sustainability" program stream of the World Mining Congress is to identify and discuss the ethical values that should define the boundaries of the emerging economic, social and environmental responsibilities of mining in the 21st century and the dimensions of mining's social license to operate.

As a participant and organizational partner in the World Mining Congress, CBERN has been invited to organize a program stream for the theme of "Mining, Ethics and Sustainability". The program will extend over three days, from August 12-14, 2013 in Montreal, QC, and will be held in conjunction with CBERN's 6th Annual Conference. It will include:

  • Three key note addresses by thought leaders whose ideas are helping to describe the nature and character of the social, economic and environmental responsibilities of mining companies in the 21st century;
  • Three cross sector panels that will explore the themes of "mining and sustainability", "women and mining", and "First Nation perspectives on the ethical values that define responsible mining";
  • Peer reviewed papers and presentations on "Mining, Ethics and Sustainability" submitted in response to the program stream Call for Papers. For a list of relevant topics and themes, and for submission details, please click here.
