ACA Howe Canadian Director (Toronto) and 2nd Vice President to PDAC, Felix Lee, will present at the Manitoba Mining and Minerals Convention between 16-18 November 2016 at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada.
Felix will deliver a national perspective on the state of mineral exploration in Canada, situated within a global context; as well as an overview of the specific actions PDAC is taking nationally, to help support a competitive and responsible exploration industry. He will explore how access to land, skills, and capital is needed to find and develop deposits of the minerals and metals that make modern life possible.
Key topics will include:
- The state of exploration finance globally and within Canada
- State of exploration expenditures in comparison to key competitors
- Factors affecting how competitive Canadian jurisdictions are at attracting investment.
The three-day conference will showcase Manitoba’s latest geoscience activities, exploration highlights, near-term development projects, financing and investment opportunities, and will look at opportunities and innovative ideas to advance Manitoba’s rich mineral potential and geologically diverse land base.
