Mining and Investment Conference


Anthony Vaccaro

President, The Northern Miner Group

The Q4 edition of the Global Mining Symposium is upon us and we have an embarrassment of world-class speakers lined up to inform you on what you need to know to make the right decisions heading into 2022.

GMS is the go-to virtual event in the mining and metals industry and we thank the industry leaders that continue to make it so by dedicating their time to join us and share their outlooks. The Q4 edition is bringing you a roster headlined by industry leaders including Mark Bristow, CEO of Barrick Gold; Rob McEwen, CEO of McEwen Mining; Candace MacGibbon, former CEO of INV Metals, and George Ogilvie, CEO of Arizona Sonoran Copper, and that is to name just a few.

Guiding the conversation will be our cast of leading journalists, whose expertise lets them ask all the right questions, but if they don’t cover something you need to know, no worries, you the delegate can ask because as always the Global Mining Symposium is fully live, unlike most other virtual events.

And of course, as always, we are bringing you a suite of exciting juniors that are poised to accomplish some big things in the year ahead as they are advancing some of the industry’s best projects, and can share their innovative technologies that will help them drive value in the coming year.

You, our audience, have made The Northern Miner’s Global Mining Symposium such a resounding success, and we will continue to count on all of you for your excellent questions and comments for our team and for our guests.

We look forward to seeing and hearing from you all again on November 17 and 18.
