Resourcing Tomorrow to shine a light on critical minerals policy

On November 27, Resourcing Tomorrow will be holding its first Critical Minerals Ministerial Roundtable and Reception in London, in conjunction with the Critical Minerals Association and hosted by the UK All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG).

Government delegations from Australia, Armenia, Canada, Chad, Nigeria, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Czech Republic, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States have confirmed their attendance.

The world is at a key juncture in the transition to greener energy and each resource-rich country is under unique pressure to attract lasting, meaningful investment into the development of their respective critical mineral resources.

Robust critical minerals policy is key in ensuring a stable landscape for investors, but also one that benefits the local population and country as a whole.

The Resourcing Tomorrow Conference taking place from November 28-30 recognises this importance and is working with governments who are featured on the conference program and will be delivering ministerial keynotes.

Geoffrey Pyatt, Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Energy Resources, United States Government, will be in attendance at the event, alongside other minisers including:

• Nusrat Ghani, Minister of State at the Department for Business and Trade, United Kingdom;
• H.E. Bandar Al Khorayef, Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources, Saudi Arabia;
• Dele Alake, Honourable Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Nigeria;
• Josie Osbourne, Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation of British Columbia, Canada;
• Hon. Ranj Pillai, Premier of Yukon, Canada;
• George Pirie, Minister of Mines, Ontario Government, Canada;
• Maïté Blanchette Vézina, Mining and Natural Resources Minister, Quebec Government, Canada;
• Nathalie Camden, Associate Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Forests, Quebec Government, Canada; and
• Hon. Abdelkerim Mahamat Abdelkerim, Minister of Mines and Geology, Chad

Peter Handley, Deputy to the Director, Head of Unit, DG GROW, European Commission, will also be welcomed to the event.

Resourcing Tomorrow, conference organisers say, represents an incomparable opportunity for all those seeking engagement in the mining sector. Global mining companies, government delegations, investors and suppliers will convene in London to benefit from informative and intelligent content and to grow valuable business relationships.
