Future Mining Scenarios

In the new Future Mining Scenarios jointly developed by INTRAW and SAFE, we present a forward-looking exploration of the mining industry’s future, set against the backdrop of the year 2050. The scenarios are designed to equip decision-makers with a nuanced understanding of potential futures. We aim to foster a proactive approach to policy and strategy development, one that is adaptable and responsive to a range of possible external developments. This report is an invitation to engage with the future of the mining industry, not as a distant abstract, but as an unfolding reality that we have the power to shape.
