The Northern Miner in partnership with the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) and supported by the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom and The Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, is proud to unveil the Canadian Mining Symposium to be held this spring in the heart of London.
This one-day event is designed to highlight Canada’s position as a premier mining jurisdiction and offer select attendees a deep dive into the continuing investment case for Canadian assets and Canadian companies operating internationally.
Industry leaders including confirmed speakers Robert Friedland, Lukas Lundin, David Garofalo and Kelvin Dushnisky will offer delegates their insights into current commodities markets and how they have built some of the world’s most successful mining and mineral exploration companies.
The Symposium will take place at Canada House on Trafalgar Square on Tuesday, May 9th, 2017, in the lead up to Canada celebrating its 150th anniversary of Confederation.
For more information about the event, please see the attached brochure and the Agenda below.
The Canadian Mining Symposium is a by-invitation-only event, with an expected audience of approximately 250 delegates made up of institutional investors and U.K. and European C-suite executives — all of whom will attend at no charge.
Major business media outlets such as the Financial Times and The Economist will also be invited.
