New Events, New Space, New Talent
In person events are back and thriving! The TMG team was thrilled to attend the PDAC (Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada) 2022 Convention in Toronto this past June. After two years of virtual events and meetings, TMG welcomed the opportunity to meet, greet, network, and to be surrounded by colleagues and thought-leaders who were ready to learn and explore what is next in our exciting mining industry. TMG is confident that the recent PDAC convention will kick-start the investment and development of several projects in different phases.
A kick-start to the investment and development of several projects.
PDAC 2022 Convention
Recognized as “the world’s premier mineral exploration and mining convention”, the PDAC 2022 conference celebrated its 90th anniversary this year. “PDAC is the leading convention for people, governments, companies and organizations connected to mineral exploration. The annual convention is held in Toronto, Canada. It has grown in size, stature and influence since it began in 1932 and today is the event of choice for the world’s mineral industry. From 2021 it is also offered as an online event.” Source.

In addition to meeting with colleagues from around the world, the TMG team had the opportunity to interact with the more than 1,100 exhibitors, industry investors and other conference attendees throughout the many offered courses and networking events.
TMG recognizes the importance for mining companies, contractors and government entities to come together and open conversations about what’s ahead in the mining industry. Several countries were represented with booths at the PDAC convention, promoting mining in their regions. Countries like Mongolia, Guyana, Finland, Greenland, and many others were present with new investment opportunities now that precious metal prices are at an all-time high.
This is a kick-start to the discussions, interactions and ultimately investment that will lead to the future of both Greenfield mining projects involving new mine sites that are ready to be developed in virgin terrain, as well as Brownfield mining projects consisting of the expansion or rehabilitation of existing mine facilities.
New members of TMG were able to enhance their exposure to mining through their attendance to several conference events, including but not limited to: presentations, networking sessions and one-on-one exchanges with clients and contractors at their booths. TMG representatives fully immersed themselves in the learning and leadership opportunities at hand.
TMG PDAC Social Event and Office Warming
TMG also hosted its inaugural PDAC Social Event at its new 15 Toronto Street office. The event allowed both new, existing, and potential clients, partners, and colleagues to socialize, network and dine while checking out the new space. Technical Management Group wishes to thank all those who were able to attend and make the social a great and enjoyable success.
