About this Podcast...
Mining IQ interviews Anna Littleboy Acting Director for Minerals Down Under National Research Flagship from CSIRO, she talks about establishing a successful processing supply chain, reducing environmental impact in rare earths and the direction of the rare earths and strategic metals industry.
Questions we asked include:
- Establishing a successful processing supply chain – especially in the metallurgical side of this – is both difficult and costly. Are there any ways to reduce costs and simplify procedures?
- There are obviously environmental concerns when it comes to rare earths and strategic metals. Are there methods or strategies that can be employed to lessen the environmental impact?
- The majority of mining and exploration companies are investing in geological and metallurgical consultants. What advice do you have for choosing such consultants?
- What do you think will be next for the rare earths industry?
The 2nd Annual Rare Earths & Strategic Metals Conference, taking place in Sydney in February 2012, will give you the opportunity to discuss your own rare earths concerns and debate the future direction of the industry with leading figures, in an intimate and timely forum.
