What is Mega mining minds?

Sharing insights and networking at PwC Mega mining minds event

 

 

We envision a mining sector that is cutting-edge, profitable and socially responsible, and to support this vision we are bringing together some of the brightest and most experienced mining minds from across the country to discuss not just survival, but how we can thrive and shape the mine of the future. We have an exciting line-up of panelists and presenters for our 2016 event, including our keynote speaker and Canadian Mining Hall of Fame inductee, Pierre Lassonde!
