Show Notes Oct 17, 2022
Episode nine was produced on October 17, 2022, on the traditional, unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
On the podcast today, we revisit an important topic: training, attracting and retaining the workers needed to find and extract the minerals and metals critical to our future. How will we develop the human resources we need to supply the mineral resources essential to a low-carbon future?
First, we speak with Aubree Barnum, Vice President, Human Resources, Lithium Americas Corp., a growing company with advancing lithium projects in Argentina and Nevada, who are looking to expand its workforce.
Next, we chat with Shaun Barker, director of the Mineral Deposit Research Unit at The University of British Columbia, who shares some concerning statistics about declining enrolments in university-level earth sciences courses.
In industry news, we share updates from Eagle Plains’ drill program at the lead-zinc Vulcan project near Kimberly; Westhaven’s $6 million net smelter return deal with Franco-Nevada; and, Evergold’s progress at the Holy Cross gold-silver property in central BC.
