Major geopolitical forces are putting new pressures on the global mining industry at a time when the
sector is reinventing itself to address the opportunities of a decarbonised economy, according to the
Content Director of the world's largest resources industry event, Resourcing Tomorrow.
Andrew Thake said these issues will be key themes at this year’s freshly re-branded Mines and Money
London 2022 conference. He said the event, now in its 20th year, is already attracting thousands of
global investors and mining company delegates to a city known as a global mining investment hub.
“With mining as a key driver of GDP growth, everyone recognises the central role it will play in the
global energy transition,” Mr Thake said.
“Resourcing Tomorrow will look at this energy transition, ESG, sustainability and the circular economy,
and how geopolitical developments such as the war in Ukraine and Covid have led to a re-appraisal of
mining supply chains.”
“Exploration is once again front of mind with a realisation that there is not enough supply to meet the
demand for a sustainable circular economy,” he said.
With an anticipated audience of 2,000 attendees, Resourcing Tomorrow runs from 29 November to 1
December 2022 at the Business Design Exhibition Centre in London.
The agenda will look to the future of mining, and through dialogue and debate seek answers to how
- Accelerate the energy transition and EV migration
- Manage geopolitical risks and resource nationalism
- Build meaningful collaboration, Jvs and partnerships
- Deliver measurable ESG outcomes across the value chain
- Reimagine its business through technology and innovation
Mike Hill, Event Director at Resourcing Tomorrow, said: “With our new look Resourcing Tomorrow
agenda, we are anticipating an even larger participation for 2022. We have already sold 85% of
exhibition floor space and anticipate 150 miners in attendance. Our forward-thinking agenda has
helped us secure some stellar keynotes including Jakob Stausholm, Chief Executive, Rio Tinto; Mark
Bristow, President & Chief Executive Officer, Barrick; Mikael Staffas, President & Chief Executive Officer,

Minerals, ICMM and Elaine Dorward-King, Non-executive Director for Sibanye Stillwater, Kenmare
