Mining Law: Opportunities and Challenges in the 21st Century

Presented by the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, with support from the U.S. Department of the
Interior Bureau of Land Management, the National Mining Association, the American Exploration & Mining
Association, and the World Association of Mining Lawyers
Minerals are a critical and finite resource. In an era of limited supply and increasing demand, lawyers
are needed who understand important and emerging issues related to the development and exploitation
of mineral resources. This in-person conference is designed not just for experienced and aspiring
mining lawyers, but also for environmental lawyers, public lands lawyers, corporate lawyers, and other
professionals who work with companies and other organizations that operate in or interact with the
mining industry. The program will cover current and developing legal opportunities and challenges that
arise over the course of the mining life cycle, from exploitation, project financing, permitting, and ESG, to
operations, post-mining reclamation, and new frontiers.
