The University of Queensland's Sustainable Minerals Institute has been invited to facilitate the consultation process in the Australia and Asia Pacific Region (or whatever region you want cover) for the recently released “Mapping Mining to the SDGs: A Preliminary Atlas”.

The World Economic, UNDP and the Columbia Center for Sustainable Investment developed the Atlas and launched the consultation draft at the recent Davos meeting. The Atlas maps the linkages between mining and the SDGs with the aim to encourage mining companies of all sizes to incorporate relevant SDGs into their business and operations. The sponsors also hope the Atlas will spur action to leverage the transformative power of collaboration and partnership between the mining industry, local and national governments, civil society and communities.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by smicsrm. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

The recent wastewater spill from the abandoned Gold King Mine in Colorado captured the attention of the nation. A sickly yellow plume filled with high levels of lead, arsenic, and other heavy metals surged through the Animas River, a major waterway used for irrigation, recreation, and drinking water, forcing the closure of that river.
