Impressions from PDAC 2019

March 08, 2019

Our Natural Resources practice team attended the 2019 Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention in Toronto from March 3–6. PDAC is an international minerals and mining industry event attended by 25,000 people from 135 countries.

BDO Canada partners struck deals with attendees, our clients and colleagues. We struck gold attending panels.

Four rich insights from the conversations and the convention:

  • Stakeholders are demanding sustainability
  • Ethically sourced metals and minerals are a competitive advantage
  • Metals and minerals shortages coming, nearly across the board
  • Equity Funding for junior miners remain tough in Canada
