Social License Panel; Panel Chair: Jim Cooney

Jim Cooney introduced the term “social license” into the discussion of mining and sustainable development, when he made a presentation in March 1997 at a World Bank Conference on “Mining: the Next Twenty-Five Years”. Since then the term has acquired broad use within the mining industry, government, academia, the consulting community, and non-­‐governmental organizations. Not everyone agrees, however, on the meaning of “social license”, or even on whether it is a useful concept. This panel will explore a range of perspectives on “social license” and its possible implications for exploration and mining projects.
