Please find the webinar which ran on the 8th July in the following:

General Conclusions

  • The local communities need to ‘see the whites of your eyes’
  • Restrictions need to be lifted so miners can meet the communities on their ground.
  • Constructions approvals processes have been paused due to lack of travel
  • Financial backing can be secured without a roadshow.
  • Mining is a very people industry: zoom et al are only a short-term option.
  • Travel protocols are available on the WTTC website.
  • The Safe Travels Stamp is designed to show travellers that the country they are travelling too has adopted the WTTC protocols. Over 50 have signed up so far
  • The objective is to re-establish confidence.
  • Helpful links to find the most up to date information are included in the WTTC presentation below.
  • Always check information about the destination country on the government websites AND your home country.
  • There is no quick fic and we need to look at alternative options
  • On and off travel restrictions are expected for at least another year. New projects cannot be delayed that long.
  • You must look at your team in a different way: add 1 question “What other nationalities or residencies do you have?”
  • You always have the right to go back to your own country
  • You can solve the problems of mobility by first checking their inventory and Secondly identifying what residencies business owners or key staff need.
  • Zoom fatigue is setting in – face-to-face is still the best way to build meaningful relationships.
  • The best option is to secure as many travel documents as you can.
  • Forward planning for at least the next year is essential
  • Essential worker status is not a recommended long-term solution for mobility flexibility.
