Mining and Waste: The Law’s Response to Theory and Practice (2016)

MtM and MLiA hosted a research and engagement day at the launch of the MLiA SARChI Chair held by Professor Hanri Mostert, which also served to introduce Professor Dee Bradshaw as the new Director of the Minerals to Metals Initiative. A day of traditional academic presentations, which included a session aimed at extracting from researchers, industry and activists some key themes for further investigation by the respective research teams, culminated in a photographic competition, which aimed to provide various perspectives on the theme of the day: Mining Waste. This component of the work was aimed at challenging researchers to literally and metaphorically look at mining and waste with new/fresh eyes as a way of challenging traditional conceptions of mining.
