ICARD 9 will bring together international experts on environmental aspects of mining and metals from the scientific community, from government agencies, from the mining and metal industries, and from other stakeholders to share knowledge and experience and to discuss industry practices, challenges and research needs.

The scope of the 2012 conference will be expanded to include aspects of resource conservation as well as policy and regulatory issues related to mining and metal production.

  • Mining & Environmental focusing on natural science and technical aspects, including ICARD-sessions on different aspects of ARD management.
  • Mining and Metals in a Sustainable Society with a more societal and policy oriented focus but also including e.g. issues related to resource management and recycling.
