7th Annual PDAC Primer

Fasken Martineau's PDAC 2017 Seminar Series
Where Fasken Martineau Canadian Offices Get directions


Moderator: Josh Lewis

The Global Mining Group of Fasken Martineau, in anticipation of PDAC 2017 in Toronto, invites you to join us across our Canadian offices for our 7th 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, Montréal, Québec City, London and Johannesburg. Presentations will begin at the times indicated in the agenda. Comestibles will be available before or after the presentations, as indicated.
