Who Will Pay for the EPA’s Mistake?
This month, E&MJ devotes a significant amount of coverage to environmental management, looking at two examples where two companies used their engineering expertise to reduce mining’s impact on rivers.

Due to the regional geology, heavy metals have been leaching into this watershed for millions of years. That same geology attracted miners and the abandoned mines have exacerbated the problem.

The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) planned a session on sponsorships for women in mining, but canceled it due to allegations related to scandalous behavior by one of its sponsors, which was exposed by the #MeToo movement. The largest exposition in Latin America, Expomin, also held a similar discussion, which was well attended.
