Olsen Collaborates with Statistical Research

Regents’ Professor John Olsen is a collaborator with Jeff Altschul of Statistical Research on a major project in Mongolia. Oyu Tolgoi, LLC, has awarded the design of the Oyu Tolgoi cultural heritage plan (CHP) to the Mongolian International Heritage Team (MIHT). The purpose of this study is to develop a CHP that allows Mongolia and Mongolians to define a process by which their heritage is not only preserved, but enhanced, at the same time that the country’s natural resources are appropriately developed. The objective of this study is to create a CHP specific to the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) project, and the goal is for the OT CHP to serve as a model for the country. They will cover all aspects of heritage- tangible and intangible-spanning the fields of archaeology, history, anthropology, paleontology, folklore, language, museology, heritage tourism, and public education.  Logistics are equally daunting; our team is scattered across the globe, with partners in Mongolia, Australia, China, Canada, England, Netherlands, and the United States.
