Transform Mining Towards a Zero Waste Industry

Global Water Curves Workshop

GLOBAL WATER CURVES WORKSHOP – September 27, 2019

You are invited to join CMIC and CEEC in Vancouver for this one day workshop that will bring together mining leaders and technical experts to map the development of a Global Water Curves tool. 

Share your unique insights to help us develop this important global tool. At the full-day workshop (to be held at the offices of Teck Resources Limited) we will be exploring:

  • What the industry requires from Global Water Curves?
  • What does water intensity mean across the value chain of mineral processing?
  • What are the right metrics to create this tool?
  • What are the benchmarking areas/groupings that would assist in leveraging the most from a water curves understanding?
  • What data sharing framework and Digital Rights Management requirements are needed?
  • How can companies and their sites can provide initial data to create tool?
  • Industry contribution and funding options for the project.
