Mark Cutifani: I think over time people will see the benefit of engaging in and taking a few risks in the conversation

Addressing the 8th Annual CSR Event Series at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) 2017 conference in Toronto, Cutifani said CSR was rightfully a top agenda item for large and small miners, and the industry's service companies. He was flanked by engineering major Hatch's Toronto-based CEO John Bianchini, and Gordon Bogden, a veteran junior mining company executive, former investment banker and current executive chairman of private investment firm, Black Loon Metals, on a panel that kicked off a series of Development Partner Institute/Kellogg Innovation Network CSR Event Series sessions at PDAC.
