Announcement

Ontario Pavilion—PDAC 2013

Plans are underway for the “Ontario Pavilion” at the 2013 Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) convention in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The event will take place from March 3–6, 2013, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) Ontario Pavilion will be located on the main trade show floor in the South building of the convention centre. The Ontario Pavilion will continue to highlight the advantages of conducting mining and exploration in the province. It also provides an excellent forum for networking with companies, investors and MNDM staff. MNDM staff will be available to discuss any projects and concepts you might have in Ontario and to answer delegate’s questions.
