International Mines Ministers Summit

On March 5, 2018, PDAC and the World Economic Forum co-hosted  the third annual International Mines Ministers Summit (IMMS). The Summit brought together 26 ministers responsible for mining from around the world. 

The event provided an important setting for the global mining community to explore challenges and opportunities affecting the industry. This year’s Summit focused on Trust: A critical foundation for the mining industry of the future. Discussions focused on how to foster the trust required to ensure that the mining sector contributes to the development and prosperity of resource-rich nations. The Summit was held during PDAC 2018 Convention at the Bank of Montreal in Toronto. 

The Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development prepared a report of the Summit: Trust: A Critical foundation for the mining industry of the future. The report is available in English, French and Spanish

Next year’s International Mines Ministers Summit will be held on March 4, 2019.
