With the advent of the exploration over the last two decades, the Western Tethys region is fast emerging as one of the world’s mining hotspots endowed with copper, gold, lithium, cobalt, nickel, borates, potash, rare earth metals and uranium. To successfully develop mining projects in the Western Tethys region, companies need to focus on Sustainability, Responsibility and Innovation. The session will look at the challenges and opportunities for building the greenfield mining projects in the Balkans, Central and Eastern Europe. Companies will present cases on how they have implemented advanced technologies and management practices to create sustainable mining projects which add a positive contribution to the economic development and meet the European environmental guidelines.
