Managing Cultural Risk on Mining Projects
July 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for a lunchtime webinar.
How do you successfully identify and manage the risks inherent with mining projects while complying with environmental and cultural resources laws? A sound strategy is the starting point. This requires effectively navigating federal processes such as the National Environmental Policy Act and National Historic Preservation Act, while facilitating productive and proactive dialog with Native American Tribes who are sovereign nations, and among stakeholders such as landowners and environmental activists. This webinar will include case studies selected from recent mining projects throughout the Midwest.
