Title: Modern Mining & You: What’s in the Future?
Location: The Laughing Buddha, 194 Elgin St
With over 500 mining sector companies currently operating and innovating in the Greater Sudbury area, our community has been dubbed “the Silicon Valley of mining”. The mining sector isn’t just a huge driver locally; some of the greatest recent innovations in mining have originated here and are being adopted globally. But many questions remain in the field of mining innovation. What impact do these innovations have on improving health and safety and reducing risk? Will they replace existing jobs? When we look at mining then and now, how far have we come – and where are we going?
