This week we're getting a global viewpoint courtesy of Tom Butler, the president and CEO of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM). (13:10)
Matt sit downs with Tom in Vancouver during a Vancouver Board of Trade event to chat about some of the big issues and discussions the mining industry is having internationally. We dig into the impact of climate change politics, the new-era of social license, and the potential for social media in mining communications.
Meanwhile, we continue our discussions with the financial community about commodity outlooks heading into the new year.
Trish Saywell provides a transcript of her discussion with Scotiabank commodity economist Rory Johnston (9:00), which contains more interesting insights on the pending nickel and copper markets.
Matt summarizes the recent buzz around Chinese loan markets and the industrial complex, and chats about the major headlines in Glencore's (LON: GLEN) investor update call (hint: think zinc). (6:45)
Finally, our Sponsor Spotlight this week features Joe Lombard, the Global Director of Metals at Hatch. (36:45) Joe and Matt chat at the Northern Miner's Progressive Mine Forum in Toronto about innovation and implementation successes and challenges from the viewpoint of a major international engineering supplier.
