Risk is everywhere in the mining industry – financial, technical, environmental and – increasingly - social. Junior and mid-tier mining companies may not have a dedicated Risk Officer, but nevertheless need a comprehensive risk management strategy. This course unpacks risk in all its dimensions: learners will systematically identify, objectively assess, cost effectively monitor and strategically manage risk. Learners will also examine scenarios where successful risk management generated opportunities. This course will appeal to, and benefit from, a diversity of mining industry backgrounds, including directors, investor relations, analysts, accountants, technical professionals, CSR specialists and corporate development officers.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Identify regulatory sources of risk disclosure.
Conduct a risk identification analysis of all the financial / operational / strategic / compliance / reputational risks facing the student’s company or industry.
Compare risk tolerances of stakeholders in the mineral exploration industry: long vs short term, financial vs environmental, community vs shareholder.
