PDAC Awards are a way for outstanding performers in the Canadian and international mineral exploration and mining industry to be recognized on the world stage for their achievements. The PDAC Awards Committee is made up of industry leaders who have a variety of different roles, skills, experience, and important professional networks.
Dating back to 1977, PDAC Awards are a way to acknowledge exceptional contributors, in up to seven categories. Recipients are celebrated at a prestigious Awards Gala every year in March during the annual PDAC Convention.
Additionally, as one of four major sponsors of the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, PDAC submits up to three nominations for consideration of induction each year.
