  • On the Ground Group's second seminar in its mineSouthAmerica series focussed on mining hotspot Colombia in Toronto on June 17, on the eve of the G20 Summit.

    The half-day seminar was held at the offices of Premier Sponsor Macleod Dixon LLP who was just named Global Mining Law Firm of the Year in the 2010 Who's Who Legal Awards.

    The seminar featured seven presentations including a macroeconomic overview on Colombia, a global ranking of Colombia's mining investment attractiveness, financing Colombian projects, etc.

    A total of eighty-five participants took in the presentations over the course of the afternoon. Of the total audience 25% were from the financial sector (analysts, investment bankers, etc), 17% were senior mining executives, 17% were service providers or advisors to the mining industry, 13% were lawyers, 4% represented media media and 4% were from engineering firms - all with an interest in mining projects in Colombia.

    A special thanks to Macleod Dixon's Brian Levett for chairing the seminar and Janne Duncan for her support and assistance and to seminar partner, the Minerals Resources Analysts Group (MRAG).

    Next up is mineMexico on September 27.
    70% of mining exploration investment in Mexico is by foreign companies, of which 75% are Canadian. mineMexico takes place the day after Cambridge House' Toronto Resource Investment Conference making it cost-effective if you plan on travelling to Toronto.
