A Zoom link will be sent on the day to those who have registered.
With the climate crisis driving society away from its reliance on fossil fuels and towards more renewable energy sources, this talk will explore the future of mining and the minerals sector. The opportunities and challenges of decarbonising our society and the increasing role of minerals in our future will be discussed.
Eoin McGrath is head of the minerals programme at Geological Survey Ireland. Prior to joining the survey he worked extensively across multiple areas of geology, spending a decade travelling the world exploring for new mineral deposits. He has also worked for the mining regulator and in academic research groups both in Ireland and abroad. Since the pandemic hit he has been locked in his home office in Waterford gazing longingly at the outdoors and hopes this will be one of his final virtual talks.
