The Global Mining Group of Fasken Martineau, in anticipation of PDAC 2015 in Toronto, invites you to join us in any of our Canadian offices for our 5th annual Pre-PDAC Primer. The presentations are designed to prime you on topics that may be relevant to your discussions at PDAC and will continue the format of previous years: short (maximum three minutes each) and practical (one-to-three specific takeaways).
The Primer will be presented by Fasken Martineau lawyers speaking live and via video conference from each of our offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, London, Paris and Johannesburg. Presentations will begin at the times indicated in the agenda below. Comestibles will be available before or after the presentations, as indicated.
The Primer is free of charge and presented in English only.
