We’re proud to host the 23rd World Mining Congress & Expo in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in 2013, and look forward to seeing you there. Montreal is truly a world-class destination and the perfect venue for our event as we look toward the future of mining.

WMC 2013 will be hosted by a collaborative team including professors from five top Canadian universities: McGill University, University of British Columbia, Queen’s University, University of Toronto and University of Alberta, as well as the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM). Canada is built on a spectacular natural resources base and continues to thrive as a world leader in the extraction of many commodities. As well, in this time of global economic challenges, Canada and its provinces are laying the groundwork for continued growth and prosperity through an expansion of infrastructure, particularly in the energy and mineral industries.

The theme for WMC 2013 is Mapping the Future: Advances in Mining Engineering, and an extensive technical program of leading-edge, peer-reviewed papers will provide the opportunity for high level knowledge sharing with peers. Over 1,500 people are expected to attend, enabling outstanding networking and the development of new business relationships. What’s more, the Mining Expo will showcase the very best suppliers and service providers supporting the global minerals industry, creating an unparalleled opportunity to hunt down the solutions to drive your business forward.

Please mark the date and plan ahead to join us in La Belle Ville as we map the future of mining, while indulging in the joie de vivre at the heart of Montreal.
