rePlan /ERM at PDAC 2016: Risk Management in the New Reality of Mining

Four years into our current downturn, the resource sector continues its re-structuring to face a ‘new reality’. Many promising new greenfield projects remain undeveloped and still seek financing, while operating assets race to reduce unit costs. In addition, the demand for transparency from stakeholders drives both technical and non-technical accountability. This new reality calls for more – not less – risk management.

Risk management is about taking a commercially-minded investment approach when protecting the business from major value erosion events, particularly as recent fatal and environmental catastrophic events are increasingly highlighted in the media and begin to impact the industry’s credibility, and by association, the brand value of individual companies.

ERM, which now includes rePlan, will be participating in forums at the PDAC Conference 2016, the world’s leading mineral exploration conference, to address the approaches the mining industry is taking in response to the changing landscape.
