Mining Myths: A Presentation to the Citizens' Mining Advisory Group

Jamie Kneen

National Program Co-Lead

The presentation builds on the idea that the mining industry is propped up by seven myths:
- Mining is about the extraction of minerals
- Mining has a small footprint
- Communities are eager to have mining
- Government will protect us, and there are laws and regulations in place to do this
- The economic benefits from mining justify the disruption
- We need more raw materials
- Mining is okay somewhere else but not here
