New Video Highlights Aboriginal Program at PDAC Convention

Toronto, October 12, 2012—The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) released a promotional video today for the PDAC Convention’s Aboriginal Program. The video, which highlights Aboriginal-related sessions from the 2012 Convention, can be viewed on the PDAC website: http://www.pdac.ca/aboriginal/video/.

The Aboriginal Program is a highlight of the PDAC Convention and is a venue for Aboriginal communities and companies and the mineral industry to network, foster relationships, create partnerships and share knowledge.

The PDAC 2013 Aboriginal Program will include:

  • Short Course on Aboriginal Awareness
  • Aboriginal Technical Session
  • Aboriginal Forum
  • Sessions on Consultation and Agreements

Over the past few years, the PDAC has increasingly used the Convention as an opportunity to enhance industry awareness of Aboriginal affairs and to showcase successful partnerships between Aboriginal communities and exploration and mining companies.

The PDAC Convention is the premier networking and financing event for the mineral industry worldwide. In 2012, the PDAC Convention attracted more than 30,000 attendees from 125 countries. The event featured more than 500 mineral exploration and mining company exhibitors and over 400 other exhibitors including national, provincial and territorial governments. Also in attendance were more than 500 self-identified Aboriginal delegates.

Join us for PDAC 2013, March 3 – 6 in Toronto – Registration begins in December!
