Miners meet in Toronto

By: Northern Ontario Business staff

The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada's (PDAC) annual convention takes place March 3-6 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

"Canada leads all countries with 18 per cent of the world's mineral exploration spending and Toronto is the global capital of mining finance-it makes sense that we host the industry's most important networking and educational event here," says PDAC President Glenn Nolan in a press release. "We're looking forward to another banner year for the PDAC convention."
Last year's event attracted 30,000 people. This year's show features 445 exhibitors and includes events on corporate social responsibility and its growing Aboriginal Forum.
Now in its 81st year, the convention attracts investors, analysts, mining executives, geologists, prospectors and international government delegations from all over the globe. In 2012, 25 per cent of convention delegates were international.
"The convention is designed to help the sector find the creative answers it needs to meet the challenges it faces," says PDAC executive director Ross Gallinger. "Programming reflects economic and industry trends, and aims to provide networking and educational opportunities to encourage a healthy mineral exploration industry."
