"David, very good summary.  Hugh, great comments. A couple of thoughts on the latter:   Strongly agree that we’re not talking about trying to stop technological progress. Not only is that not possible, but the consequences of…"

"Coming back to the topic of the discussion, I think that a key point of the mine of the future will be the way to increase e-communications between mines and communities.  One of the great potential for mine 4.0 is the hability to monitor the…"

"Aaron and Isabelle:  The social licence to operate will continue to be major themes for future mines regardless of the adoption of future tech. The crucial issue I think, is to ensure that there is good communication and transparency between…"

"Rene, My impression is that Social License to Operate (SLO) requires to be updated for quite a while now. For instance SLO still refers to transactional relationship, which is part of the challenge that needs to be addressed. Probably the long…"
