In its 90-year history, the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) has brought together the most important players in one of the global economy’s most essential mining industries…to engage, enlighten, and energize the metals and mining sector. COVID-19 brought the convention to a one-on-one halt for nearly two years, but the sector and its market movers have always seen the proverbial ‘light at the tunnel.”

In short, PDAC is the leading voice of the mineral exploration and development community, an industry that supports 719,000 people in direct and indirect employment and contributes $106 billion to Canada’s GDP every year. Representing over 6,000 members around the world, PDAC’s work centers on supporting a competitive, responsible, and sustainable mineral sector. Globally, it goes far beyond that.

Yes. It’s a Canadian show, but it brings together the most important and influential players from around the globe, including some of the ASX’s prime market movers.

Attendance is easy. Show up. Shake some hands. And pass out some business cards. But the real nut & bolts of business are creating long-term capital growth, making real business relationships, and getting boots on the ground spinning drills. Here are a few of the Australian companies that are doing just that.
