May 6th saw a beautiful sunny day as NZIMMR welcomed Government officials from MBIE, NZP&M, and the PGF to Ngati Waewae Marae for a Powhiri. The delegates later visited NZIMMR's corporate head office in Mackay street, Greymouth for presentations followed by a site visit to the Spring Creek Research Laboratory. The presentations covered a research update on all our active projects and some practical demonstrations of fine and ultra fine gold recovery.
Our CEO’s visit to PDAC
By invitation from the New Zealand Government, our CEO Mr. Tony Hogg attended the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada or PDAC. PDAC is the world’s premier mineral exploration & mining convention that brings together experts, scholars, companies and organizations interested in mineral exploration. PDAC welcomed over 1,000 exhibitors, 3,500 investors and 25,600 attendees from 135 countries, attending technical sessions, short courses and networking events. The four-day annual convention held in Toronto, Canada, has grown in size, stature and influence since it began in 1932 and today is the event of choice for the world’s mineral industry.
PDAC Convention is the most-attended event for the world's mineral exploration and mining sector. It was a fabulous opportunity to network with other governmental research agencies, private and public companies and discuss future research staff employment and exchange collaborative research opportunities.
