The workshop will explore a number of timely issues, including:
- The importance of sustainable geology and exploration projects
- Legal components in mineral resource governance and mineral revenue management
- Stakeholder engagement strategies
- Worker health and safety
- Environmental sustainability in mine closure
- Research and development from China, Japan and Korea on green mining and mineral processing technologies
The workshop will close with a field trip to the Saraburi Province to witness some of the concepts discussed first-hand.
