Editor's Note: Kitco News & Kitco Insider collaborated with Northern Miner to offer you exclusive access the Canadian Mining Symposium. The one-day event included panels and discussions from some of the biggest names in mining. You can catch coverage of talks by Robert Friedland, Lukas Lundin, Rob McEwen, David Garofalo & Kelvin Dushnisky here.
(Kitco News) -- Ever wonder what it would be like to be in a room with some of the mining greats? To have a candid conversation about precious metals with them?
Well, wonder no more...
The event takes a deep dive into the Canadian mining success story: from exploration, to corporate development, to how the country has exported its expertise in exploration and mining across the globe.
The speaking roster was also rather enticing, hosting some of the most sought-after names in the industry, including Robert Friedland of Ivanhoe Mines; Lukas Lundin of Lundin Mining; Rob McEwen of McEwen Mining; David Garofalo of Goldcorp; and Barrick's Kelvin Dushnisky, to name a few.
Kitco Insider is providing viewers with VIP access to highlights from the one-day event, including Friedland's "fireside chat" on precious metals.
"It's clear we're in a period of very profound and fundamental change," Friedland told attendees.
"We think the mining industry is going to change completely in the next 20 years and we want to be part of that process instead of following it. This whole thing is going to be disrupted."
All presentations are available on Kitco Insider.
