CSA Global Principal Geologist, Sam Ulrich will present at the upcoming AusIMM February Tech Talk on ‘Greenhouse gas emissions, their abatement, and impact of a carbon price on gold mining’ to be held on Monday 8 February 2021 in Perth, Western Australia.
About this event
The presentation will seek to:
- Examine the relationship between GHG emissions and production costs and the potential to shape the future of the gold industry globally through a greater focus of clean and efficient production.
- Assess the economic impact upon gold miners that the introduction of a hypothetical US$50/t CO2-e and US$100/t CO2-e carbon price in each country.
- Outline how institutional funds and lenders are seeking disclosure and mitigation of climate risks.
DATE AND TIME
Monday, 08 February 2021
6.00pm – 7.00pm (UTC+08:00)
Sam is a principal geologist with more than 25 years’ experience in exploration and resource development of gold, uranium and copper projects. He has several years’ experience as a consultant and possesses strong knowledge in project evaluations, the undertaking of VALMIN compliant valuations and Independent Geological Reports for IPO’s. Sam has worked extensively in Archaean orogenic gold deposits, epithermal gold, and silver deposits in Indonesia and North Queensland. He has travelled globally to undertake assignments in many countries, such as China, Laos, Indonesia, Argentina and the Kyrgyz Republic. With a strong interest in mineral economics, Sam is currently undertaking his PhD at the Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) at The University of Western Australia linking geology to gold mine economics in Australia and New Zealand with a focus on orogenic gold deposits. His most research paper ‘Greenhouse gas emissions and production cost footprint in Australia gold mines’ published by the Journal of Cleaner Production in 2020 delves into the impacts of gold grade changes, energy substitution and energy efficiency initiatives on GHG emissions intensity.
