Speaker: Cecilia Garcia Marra, PEng – McCue Engineering Contractors
To support the development of a gold mine located in northern BC, Canada, McCue Engineering Contractors (McCue) completed the detailed design, construction, and commissioning of a complex mine water treatment plant. After deployment, McCue was contracted first to support operation and later to provide full operation services. This is a success story not only on the technical side but also on the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) management as well as the organic implementation of a diverse working team
Speakers: Jared Peterson & Brandon Harris from Peter Lucas Project Management
Canada sits at a crossroads. With the oil and gas sector’s glory days fixed firmly in the rear-view mirror, and volatility of world commodity prices resulting in lower production and fewer jobs with some of the Saskatchewan’s largest mining companies, there is more talent sitting idle in the industries than at any time in recent memory. Jared & Brandon discuss the unlikely but overwhelmingly strong parallels between what we do here in Saskatchewan already, and what we will need to do in space. We will explore the barriers, opportunities, and the plan that Peter Lucas has created to bring our humble province into the race to mine off-earth.

In our time together, I will address the magic behind vision and how you too can create a captivating cause for what’s yet to come for your business and your people.

Speaker: Jocelyn Peltier-Huntley
This presentation includes an overview of the current communication strategies related to gender equity in Canadian mining and the results from a nationwide survey which gathered perceptions from 540 current and former mining employees. Findings from the study indicate that individual mining companies are at different positions on their journey to create an industry that is ultimately reflective of the communities in which they operate. Suggestions for a multi-fronted communication strategy that encourages shifting mindsets and behaviours are discussed.
