Mining in transition: Explore our events during PDAC 2024

Special events

From March 3 to 6, the PDAC 2024 Convention will assemble mining industry leaders from 130 countries to discuss a number of important issues shaping the global sector. Outside the convention itself, this unique gathering offers a vital opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from one another’s past successes and failures. 

In keeping with this spirit, we are pleased to announce our seminar program, which will run parallel to the convention. We look forward to connecting and sharing insights with our clients, colleagues and other mining professionals, both in Canada and around the world.
