Mining and Investment Conference


Anthony Vaccaro

Group Publisher of The Northern Miner Group and Managing Director of Glacier Resource Innovation Group

The Q3 edition of the Global Mining Symposium is upon us and you already know what you need to do about it: Get registered and tune-in so that you can shake off the summer rust and get up to speed with where our industry is heading, not only for the remainder of this year, but in the next year ahead.

GMS has established itself as the go-to virtual event in the mining and metals industry thanks to our rare combination of top flight speakers and the top flight journalists that interview them and get the answers to the questions that will inform your investment and business decisions.

But even the best journalists can’t cover every key question, and that is why, unlike most other virtual events, we do ours live. This means delegates get to interact with speakers in real time and can get some surprising off the cuff answers to their questions. It’s been the secret sauce of the Symposiums and has allowed us to stick out from the crowded space of virtual conferences.

But if you’ve already tuned in, you already know that, and if you haven’t, well now is your chance to get dialed in.

We have a stellar roster of industry leaders to hear from with Clive Johnson, CEO of B2 Gold and Peter Marrone, Executive Chairman of Yamana Gold. They’ll be joined by industry insiders Trent Mell, CEO of First Cobalt, who will give us the deep dive on the battery metals market, and industry leading pricing and forecasting expert Jeffrey Christian of CPM Group, who will tell us where the precious metals space is heading in the year ahead.

We are also honoured to be joined by ERM, a leader in the ESG space, and Onyen, which has developed a powerful software tool for ESG reporting.

And of course, as always, we are bringing you a suite of exciting juniors that are poised to accomplish some big things in the next twelve months 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 Symposiums 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 September 22 and 23.
