Brazilian organizations from the mining sector, as well as from the federal government, will present to foreign investors and entrepreneurs the new business opportunities in the sector for the coming decades at the annual convention of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada – PDAC 2023. The event will be held in the city of Toronto, Canada, between March 5th and 8th this year. In another year, IBRAMwill be present with the Brazilian organizing committee at the PDAC 2023, coordinated by the Agency for Technological Development of the Brazilian Mineral Industry (ADIMB). Entities such as the National Mining Agency (ANM) and the Geological Survey of Brazil (SGB – CPRM) will also bring their representatives to the convention. The director-president of IBRAM, Raul Jungmann, believes that the PDAC is an ideal stage to conduct a survey on the mood of foreign investors in relation to mining in various nations, including Brazil. “Ensuring the presence of the Brazilian mineral sector in events of this size is an opportunity to prospect new business, in addition to obtaining information on the scenario of the activity worldwide”, he analyzes. About the PDAC PDAC is the leading voice of the mineral exploration and development community. With over 8,000 members worldwide, the event’s mission is to promote a globally responsible and sustainable mineral sector that encourages leading practices in technical, operational, environmental, safety and social performance. Annually, the trends, perspectives and challenges of the mineral sector on an international scale are presented and debated.
