Sponsored by:
School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences Precourt Institute for Energy Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment

With world population growing to 10 billion by 2050 and a rapid increase in standards of living, the extraction of Earth's mineral resources to support those growing demands is not sustainable.

The continuing use of these resources -- ranging from lithium, iron, and rare earth elements to copper, uranium, and gold, among many others -- must be carried out in a way that minimizes environmental impacts to ecosystems and impacts to human health while enhancing societal benefits.

More than 20 speakers from the international mineral resources industry, government agencies, and academia will gather at Stanford for this two day symposium.

When:
Ongoing every day from December 8, 2017 through December 9, 2017.
Where:
Paul Brest Hall, Munger Building 4, 555 Salvatierra Walk
Admission:

For all Stanford faculty, students and staff.
