Miller Thomson’s PDAC 2019 Seminar Series

March 4, 2019 - March 5, 2019

Riding the upswing of global mineral exploration investment, the outlook for the industry remains optimistic overall for 2019.

Good news stories are expected from all corners – whether they are generated by companies pushing the boundaries of technology to yield better results and market leadership, or producers in Canada and South America buoyed by China’s seemingly inexhaustible demand for iron ore and other metal minerals.

The stage seems set for a year full of opportunity for industry players and stakeholders everywhere.

Join us for a glimpse into those opportunities from insiders whose perspectives and insights will give unique dimension to this year’s high potential markets and prospects.
