Areas of Interest

The Exploration Insights selection committee strongly encourages the submission of abstracts on the following topics:

  • New concepts and technical developments in exploration. Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning submissions will be given special consideration.
  • New uses and technical advancements for individual commodities (e.g., lithium, cobalt, graphite)
  • Creative ideas for achieving gender diversity in the mining sector
  • Exploration properties of merit (their recent exploration and development history)
  • Mineral deposit case histories (mineralization, alteration and deposit formation)
  • Case histories dealing with permitting successes inside and outside of Canada
  • Case histories dealing with exploration health and safety

Exploration Insights presentation opportunities are 25 minutes in length. Microsoft PowerPoint presentations are to be received by PDAC at least two weeks in advance of the convention. They will be reviewed and edits for clarity and style compliance may be suggested if necessary to meet with PDAC presentation standards. Final versions must be received at least a day before the session in order that they can be preloaded onto a master AV system. AV technicians will be available onsite for last-minute assistance if required.

The selected presentations will be listed on the PDAC website, in the Convention Program and on onsite signage. There is no fee to participate, however, the presenting author is responsible for the convention registration and securing accommodation if required.
