CHANGING APPROACHES. The 9th annual San Juan Mining and Reclamation Conference and 3rd Annual Innovation Expo are both happening in Silverton this year at the Kendall Mountain Center, so the two will be conjoined to focus on changing approaches in mining and reclamation. The conference will be an opportunity to step back and look at the bigger picture of mining and reclamation in the San Juan Mountains.
The Innovation Expo will highlight changes and innovations with a focus on technological development and business opportunities to bring those innovations to market for more widespread use. Technological areas will include emerging changes in:
Monitoring, remote sensing, and assessment of data
Treatment methods for acid drainage and mine waste
Prevention of acid generation and in-situ treatment*
Development of valuable products from frequently disposed waste materials
