International Mines Ministers Summit

On March 6, 2017, PDAC and the World Economic Forum co-hosted  the second annual International Mines Ministers Summit (IMMS). The Summit brought together an impressive 25 ministers responsible for mining from around the world.

The event provided an important setting for the global mining community to explore challenges and opportunities affecting the industry. This year’s Summit focused on innovation in the mining industry and the clean innovation agenda. The Summit was held during PDAC 2017 Convention at the Bank of Montreal in Toronto.

The Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development prepared a report of the Summit, The Innovation Imperative in the Mining Sector. The report is available in English, French and Spanish.

Next year’s International Mines Ministers Summit will be held on March 5, 2018.
