Three major influencers in the global mining industry, The Northern Miner, The Canadian Mining Hall of Fame and Young Mining Professionals, have come together to organize the Mining Legends Speaker Series.
Alternating between Vancouver and Toronto, the Speaker Series is being launched in an earnest effort to take action against the widening knowledge gap in our industry, as well as to give the leaders and experts of our industry an intimate, live platform to share some of their wisdom and experience with a highly engaged audience.
Each event, limited to 100 delegates, will bring together professionals from across the industry to share knowledge, network, and discuss the future of the mining.
