The concept of international best practice represents a global consensus among representatives of government, industry and international development partners as to what constitutes appropriate ground rules and protections for the achievement of the objectives of the industry and the public goals of the government.
While the Nigerian mining sector may be in its infancy, the government is looking to grow the sector and from the offset is looking to ensure the industry can be benchmarked against global best practices.
Listen to a recording of the webinar hosted by Mining Review Africa and Nigeria Mining Week which unpacked this topic at length – covering all critical topics that must be considered to ensure the country’s mining sector is world-class.
Key discussion points will include:
