Elizabeth Gardiner, Vice President, Technical Affairs for The Mining Association of Canada, closed the workshop by thanking all participants, and especially the presenters, for their hard work and tremendous efforts. She also thanked all those responsible for putting together an impressive workshop agenda in a relatively short time, and for ensuring that the workshop ran smoothly. The workshop Proceedings will be sent out in three or four weeks to all participants for comment in order to ensure accuracy. Following this, Final Proceedings will be prepared and distributed. The National Orphaned/Abandoned Mines Advisory Committee will distil the results from the workshop and develop recommendations and a path forward. Recommendations will be submitted to Mines Ministers in September and participants will be kept apprised of initiatives as they evolve.

Elizabeth noted that the work of the NOAMAC is gaining prominence steadily, both here in Canada and abroad, as a unique multi-stakeholder initiative relating to orphaned and abandoned mines. By continuing to work on this issue in an open, creative and collaborative way, all stakeholders can demonstrate their commitment and resolve to finding solutions that will benefit the environment and civil society in the short and long term.
