Working Groups:

RMSI is helping to identify “Pathways for Improving Practice” and “Agendas for Responsive Research.” Inspired by the energy around GEMM 2020, several project teams came together on the final day of the dialogue as work groups whose efforts have had a continuing life beyond the dialogue.

These projects included mapping of the multitude of existing regulatory and non-regulatory activities, processes, standards and codes; and for these to be considered within a framework for responsible mining that reflects the interests of all sectors and the need for more creative and accessible tools for communities affected by mining.

These activities helped to shape the subsequent GEMM 2013 Dialogue in Vancouver.
