Emily Moore named to Top 100 Inspirational Women in Mining of 2016

January 4, 2016

Emily Moore, Hatch’s global lead for water and tailings management, has been recognized as one of 100 inspirational women in mining from around the globe.

The 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining Project, undertaken by Women in Mining (UK), recognizes women from many backgrounds for their outstanding contribution to the mining industry and their positive effect as a role model to encourage other females to enter the sector.

With over 20 years of experience and more than 20 US patents to her name, Emily Moore is a leader in product development, technology delivery, and innovation management. As a Queen’s University graduate with an engineering chemistry degree, and an Oxford University Rhodes scholar with a doctorate in physical chemistry, Moore possesses many qualities as an exceptional mentor and role model for young professionals at Hatch.

Moore began her career in industrial research and development for the Xerox of Canada’s Research Centre, prior to joining Hatch in 2008 where she served as the director of technology development. In 2012 she moved into her current role as managing director of water and tailings management. In 2015 she took on an additional role as general manager of Hatch’s Mississauga global delivery center. 

“I find that the challenges we face in mining are so fundamental to human society, and the opportunities so vast,” says the multi-awarded PhD. “How do we extract minerals with minimal environmental impact? How do we develop models that share the benefits with employees, shareholders and communities? Solving these problems requires interdisciplinary thinking and multidisciplinary teams and I love being part of the solution.”

Women in Mining (UK) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the employment, retention, and progress of women in the mining industry. This is its second launch of the 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining Project which is undertaken by WIM (UK) and sponsored by BMO, in collaboration with WIM groups in Australia, Canada, South Africa, and the United States.
