PanAfGeo-2 participation at the PDAC 2022 Convention


The annual Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) is the premier event of the world’s mineral exploration and mining industry. The PanAfGeo Project was represented at the EuroGeoSurveys (EGS) stand in the European Commission’s booth. The European Commission booth also hosted European Commission initiatives and representatives such as the European Raw Materials Alliance and EIT Raw Materials, projects from H2020 (the European Union (EU) research programme for research and innovation) and EU member states.

Throughout the PDAC Convention, EGS promoted the PanAfGeo Project by providing informative discussions on the scientific training sessions conducted in the different geoscientific domains and, in particular, training sessions in mineral resource assessment. There was also the Mine African Pavilion that provided networking opportunities throughout the convention. Other related events also focused on the African mining industry.

“PDAC provides another great opportunity for strengthening our Africa-EU partnership through PanAfGeo,” said Julie Hollis, Secretary General of EuroGeoSurveys, after meeting with Dr David Khoza, Executive Manager of the Council for Geoscience (South Africa) and Secretariat Representative of the Organisation of African Geological Surveys (OAGS).
