The Sustainability Program has aimed to facilitate multi-stakeholder dialogue and peer-learning on key issues related to responsible exploration and mining.

The Sustainability Program features presentations and dialogue that examine the innovative ways in which mineral exploration and mining companies are working to improve their sustainability performance, presenting challenges and successes, as well as lessons learned.

Topics discussed at the Sustainability Program are both current and critical to the continued improvement of the performance in the industry. Speakers include sustainability experts, and members of industry, government and civil society.

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.
