The Chamber held the twelfth version of its highly regarded Risk Mitigation & CSR seminar series with Premier Founding Sponsor Hatch in Vancouver on June 5, 2014.

The full-day seminar provided participants with an opportunity to learn how to moderate their risk in all mining jurisdictions around the world - from Canada to South Africa to Peru, through the implementation of effective CSR programs.


In addition to our Premier Founding Sponsor Hatch we were also pleased to have The Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia, MineAfrica, On the Ground Group (mineLatinAmerica) and the Peruvian-Canadian Chamber of Commerce as partners.


A big thank you to our seminar co-chairs Bruce Rustad, Senior Project Manager, Hatch and Martin Jones, Chairman, Banro Foundation.
