Impact of Covid-19 on Mining Industry in Europe
The coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic has caused global stock markets to drop, commodity prices to tumble and mine production outputs globally to take severe hits. The session will provide an outlook of the current state of the regional mining industry and offer a view of post- COVID-19 domestic and international developments.
Present and Future of Financing Mining in Europe
Following the global commodities crash in 2011/2012 creative alternative solutions for raising cash became available in the junior mining sector replacing traditional platforms. In 2020 virus-precipitated unprecedented economic downturn is causing severe disruption to global financial markets, which raises question of funding for exploration and mining in Europe. Investors and professional advisors will examine the current state of the financial market and discuss new alternative financing for mining industry in the current climate.

De-carbonisation of the European economy â€“ how this transforms mining industry
In 2012 the European Commission stated the aim of increasing the share of manufacturing in total gross value added from 15.5% at that time to 20% by 2020. In its 2030 Industry Vision, it has committed to boosting the transformation of the industry by stimulating innovation and promised to introduce new policies to ensure that the European industry becomes climate-neutral, circular, and resource-efficient, with reliable access to low carbon energy and raw materials.
