The Age of Minerals – How do we move to sustainable mining practices?

Hybrid Hybrid Event

The second in a series of three talks on minerals this summer, to complement our exhibition Riches of the Earth. The final talk is on 12 July, Mineral Pigments in Archaeology & Art History.

As the UK moves towards Net Zero emissions and a greener future, we will move from “The Age of Oil” to “The Age of Minerals”.

To make wind turbines, solar panels and the batteries required for electric cars, we need minerals which contain specialist metals such as lithium, cobalt and rare earth elements. As they cannot be grown, these minerals must be mined.

This talk will give an overview of the transition to The Age of Minerals and how we can move towards sustainable mining, that is mining which protects environments, ecosystems and humans.
