Coming full circle – a masterclass in planning for modern mine closure
Peter Harvey, Global Head of Closure, Rio Tinto Angela Bigg, President and Chief Executive Officer, Diavik Diamond Mine Moderator: Carolyn Chisholm, GM External Affairs Canada
At Rio Tinto, we are working to deliver shared benefits for host communities, employees and investors; positive ESG outcomes; and innovative solutions that minimise long-term liabilities through safe and responsible asset closure. We do this in partnership with our stakeholders, embedding closure considerations throughout the lifespan of our assets – in the way we design, build, run, close and transition them. Join Peter Harvey, Global Head of Closure, Rio Tinto and Angela Bigg, President and Chief Executive Officer, Diavik Diamond Mine for a discussion on Rio Tinto’s closure practices and how we’ve integrated sustainable closure planning since mining began at Diavik in 2003.
