PDAC 2022: The World’s Premier Mineral Exploration & Mining Convention will take place March 7-10, 2022 (dates are subject to change).

Our team continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on travel and in-person events, and the ongoing challenges it has created.

Although we are unable to confirm the event format at this time, we are exploring a number of options for the Convention, including virtual, hybrid and in-person. You can rest assured that the health, safety and well-being of all participants remains the priority in our planning.

We thank you for your patience and will provide further updates as information becomes available.
