The PDAC Convention Planning Committee is responsible for planning and execution of the Technical Program. In order to ensure delivery of the relevant programming and selection of the high calibre speakers, the planning process begins 1.5 years in advance of every convention.

Industry experts are invited to share timely insights during these dynamic series of presentations. Attendees learn new and best practices that can be applied to their work right away

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.
