Minerals Exploration Forum to focus on Community Engagement

May 21, 2014

The forum, one of the largest of its kind in the country, will discuss the latest leading practices in community engagement, regulatory compliance and environmental management.
 
Presenters include NSW Land and Water Commissioner Jock Laurie, who will make a keynote presentation to the delegates.
 
“This year’s forum has a strong emphasis on community engagement.  Mineral explorers regard community consultation, regulatory compliance and environmental management as three key pillars of their operations,” NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee said today.
 
"While most exploration doesn't lead to mining, it's still a very important part of the process because it helps identify where opportunities for the potential job-generating mining projects of the future may be."
 
“Over the last few years, investment in minerals exploration in NSW has fallen by around one third. This is a worrying sign for the long-term economic future our state. We need a strong exploration sector in NSW to ensure we maximise our natural economic advantages and make the most of our minerals opportunities."
