Jen Hansen and Jennifer Wasylyk Quoted in Lexpert’s Special Edition on Global Mining; Multiple Partners Recognized as Leaders in the Field


Jen Hansen and Jennifer Wasylyk have been quoted in Lexpert’s Special Edition on Global Mining.

Both Jen and Jennifer were part of the look at “Mining and ESG: A New Standard,” which notes that social and governance goals now share equal footing with the environment as part of sustainable mining. Jennifer says that while ESG issues can apply to any company and its operations, some impact mining companies more than others: “Human rights and security are two big ones” along with relationships with Indigenous groups and artisanal miners and employee health and safety. Jen notes that we will see a move “away from boilerplate language” and “an increased call for real action, real expertise, and better disclosure.”

In addition, Jen is also quoted in the article “Mining M&A in a Changing World,” which says that economic volatility, inflation, and geopolitical risk paint a murky picture for mining M&A. Says Jen: “We expect that we will continue to see strategic transactions and consolidation in the sector, even in light of the challenging capital markets, as there are opportunities that remain.”
