The IKN PDAC Primer, 2009


Yes indeed it's Peedac time again. Next week the whole of the Canadian mining community (and most of the rest of the world, too) gather in one very cold spot to get drunk, do deals and slap each other on the back. So to help those planning on visiting the show to survive PDAC, here's a list of 25 LatAm exposed (well mostly) miners among the exhibitors you can visit. I've chosen these because they top out my personal list of "gotta visits" this year. Now PDAC is a big place and there's always a ton of stuff to cover, so it's always best to get straight to the point.Therefore as well as finding the name of the company and its PDAC 2009 stand number, you'll also see what Otto suggests is an apt question to throw at the company people on at the show.

And for extra convenience, here's a PDF copy of the list. Just download, print out and take it along. Here we go with Otto's 25 to visit!
