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 next and best practices that can be applied to their work right away.

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.
