PDAC 2021: The World’s Premier Mineral Exploration & Mining Convention will take place from March 7-10. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing challenges it has created, we are unable to confirm the event format at this time. However, our team is currently exploring a number of options. The health, safety and well-being of all participants is our priority and these principles will guide us in our planning.

We will provide further updates in the fall. Thank you for your patience.
