Toronto temperatures hit record highs last week as On the Ground Group launched its mineSouthAmerica seminar series with "Focus on Peru" on May 27.
Even hotter than the temperature was interest in mining projects in Peru - the world's sixth ranked gold producer and the world's number one silver miner.
Focus on Peru was the inaugural seminar in the mineSouthAmerica series which provides a platform for mining companies and advisors to the mining industry to update a targetted audience of senior-level financial and mining executives on their companies, projects, expertise and services.
Premier Sponsor for the series is Macleod Dixon LLP who was just named Global Mining Law Firm of the Year in the Who's Who Legal Awards.
The seminar featured nine presentations; seven updates from mining companies on their Peruvian projects and two technical presentations including financing mining projects in South America and dual listing on the TSX and BVL (Lima Stock Exchange).
A total of eighty-five participants took in the presentations over the course of the afternoon. Of the total audience 26% were from the financial sector (analysts, investment banks, etc), 24% were senior mining executives, 13% were lawyers, 14% were service providers and advisors to the mining industry and 5% represented mining media.
"I enjoyed tremendously the Peru day symposium last week and thank you for the opportunity to participate. The interest generated from my Condor talk was very strong....It was a success for us." Patrick Burns, President and Chief Executive Officer, Condor Resources Inc.
A special thanks to Macleod Dixon's Brian Levett for chairing the seminar and Janne Duncan for her support and assistance and to seminar partners; the Minerals Resources Analysts Group (MRAG) and the Peruvian-Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
Next up is Focus on Colombia on June 17 followed by mineMexico on September 27. For more information on presenting, sponsoring or attending contact Wayne Floreani.
"It was a super show and I'm looking forward to Colombia." John Segsworth, Exempt Market Dealer
