Thanks TIA for keeping us absentees informed on the SFCG conference.
Will there be transcript?
One question I would have asked if I had attended: What is/will be the impact of the international mining companies working in the area? Presumably they follow international labor and safety regs, carry out social and environmental impact studies,pay their taxes, and seek a social license to operate from the local population. Can they be a part of the solution?
