Members of the IGF Secretariat will be attending this year’s Water in Mining 2020, being held in Toronto, Ontario, from April 22-23, 2020.

Water management is increasingly becoming a strategic business imperative within boardrooms across the mining industry, and as a consequence, international mining companies are searching for innovative ways to treat, manage and reuse water, as well as to mitigate risk, drive efficiency and combat climate change impacts.

Building on the success of the inaugural event, Water in Mining 2020 will give participants the opportunity to connect with fellow members of their industry, including the top 50 global mining companies, and to debate and discuss the challenges and solutions impacting the present and future of water in mining.


Participants will be able to:

  • Find innovative ways to minimize water use, increase efficiency and mitigate risk
  • Learn which treatment solutions will cut cost and drive sustainability
