 10th annual San Juan Mining and Reclamation Conference with a 2o2o format: ONLINE

September 21-23, 2020

THEME: Adaptive Capacity in Uncertain Times

Miners and mining communities are no strangers to challenge and changing conditions. The year of 2020 brought with it a series of challenges and opportunities. As a result, the San Juan Mining & Reclamation Conference (SJMRC) theme is “Adaptive Capacity in Uncertain Times” to encourage discussions of how the mining and reclamation community can plan for success in an uncertain world.

From global markets to pandemics and climate, change is the only certain constant. We seek to learn from the experiences and insights of those with approaches to adaptive management and risk assessment that respond to changing conditions and pivot to take advantage of current and future trends. We are interested in discussing trend outlooks, best practices, and solutions from the perspective of adaptation and pivoting to respond effectively to disruptions in dynamic times.
