Smart Mining | State and Federal Mining Policy Update

This panel, sponsored by Climax Molybdenum, a Freeport-McMoRan Company , will take place at the annual SME Conference & Expo.
Every federal agency has implemented the administration's objectives to ease regulations in the energy and environmental arena. EPA, BLM, the Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service and others have embraced the plan. Colorado state agencies are dealing with these changes in various ways. The panel will review some of the more critical regulatory actions taken over the last two years at the federal level which impact the coal, energy and hardrock mining industries.
