Klein was among the leading mining executives interviewed for the "Mining Journal Global Leadership Report: Preparing for transformation" which was published last week.
He also spoke about what Evolution was doing to differentiate itself in terms of employee engagement, the way he sees the resources industry as a "crucial part" of Australia's future and how transformation is an enabler for the industry to do better.
"It's a fascinating time to be in the industry," he said.

This is based on an interview with Evolution Mining executive chairman Jake Klein as part of the ‘Mining Journal Global Leadership Report: Preparing for transformation', released last week. The report features around 20 in-depth interviews with the industry's leading mining executives and the results of our industry-wide survey focused on transformational influences (technology, stakeholder engagement etc) and the readiness of mining leaders to meet these challenges.
