EGS at PDAC 2020: Strengthening EU and global cooperation and fostering EU’s effort on a secure raw materials supply
PDAC, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s annual convention returned to Toronto on 1-4 March 2020. EGS was present at the EU booth, which hosted several actors from the H2020 project framework, EU member states, SMEs and EU Geological Surveys. At the EU networking breakfast, the EGS Secretary General Dr. Slavko Solar presented “EuroGeoSurveys and Minerals”.
Moreover, the 2020 International Meeting of Geological Surveys Organizations was held for discussing the future of the International Consortium of Geological Surveys.
During the convention, EGS had the chance to discuss about a potential future collaboration with the State Service for Geology and Subsoil of Ukraine (SGSSU).
The PDAC convention was a fruitful occasion for having a glimpse of the future steps in the global mining sector while raising attention on sustainable and responsible sourcing of raw materials.
