GPR Dehler recently interviewed five mining industry leaders on how companies should set and enact long-term agendas to deal with complexity: Nick Curtis (Lynas Corp); David Flanagan (Atlas Iron Limited); Owen Hegarty (G-Resources, CST Mining, Tigers Realm Minerals and Coal) and Jake Klein (Evolution Mining) They highlighted four critical strategic areas on which mining companies – individually and as an industry – should focus.
