Media Advisory: UA to Host Mining Summit
The University of Arizona is hosting an invitation-only summit where mining industry, academic and government leaders will discuss what would it take to secure Arizona's future as the world's leading innovator in mining, and what that might mean for the state and the global mining industries.
Mary Poulton, co-director of the UA's Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources, will present a side-by-side comparison of Arizona to Silicon Valley to illustrate what it takes to build a world-class innovation ecosystem in a specialized field and the critical role of UA in connecting Arizona's expansive mining ecosystem and workforce development. Other topics include the importance of mining and the mining supply chain to the state, mining's significance to the public sector, and innovations in mining technology and sustainability.
Media interested in attending should RSVP to Jodi Banta at 520-621-2988 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
