MENTORING

MENTORING PROGRAM

As the geoscience community grows, there is a need to provide guidance and support
to recent graduates. An important part of this support structure is mentorship.

PDAC has launched a program that gives members an opportunity to share their vast
knowledge and experiences with students and recent graduates, some of whom will be
future industry leaders.

Our mentoring program connects participants through meaningful relationships.


This allows our experienced members to share their industry knowledge, and for
mentees to comfortably enter into industry roles. Respect and understanding is
emphasized in creating a fulfilling partnership, resulting in a more diverse and a
more welcoming community.

Organizer: Condor Consulting, Inc.
Major metallogenic terranes are known to be important
locations for a variety of mineral deposit styles and
commodities. As explorers are challenged to find more
and better quality deposits, it is becoming critical to
understand these settings in more detail than has
been done in the past. High quality, pre-competitive
geophysical data sets that can be used to assist in
terrane assessments are increasingly available in a
number of locations around the world.
The workshop will highlight where these data sets are
becoming available and provide some suggestions as to
how these data sets can be used to best advantage.

Welcome to PDAC

On behalf of all of us in the Base Metals business at Vale, allow me


to welcome you to Canada, to Toronto and to the 2017 Prospectors
and Developers Association of Canada annual convention.
Each year at this time, the mining world converges on Toronto to share
opportunities, accomplishments and challenges in a unique collaborative
setting. Vale is proud to be a part of it again this year as a sponsor of the
Investors Exchange. We encourage you to visit and say hello at the Vale booth.
Our industry has had its shares of up and downs with the price cycle. The last
few years have been difficult ones for many commodities but through it all
we have maintained our focus on improving safety, increasing efficiencies and
delivering value to our stakeholders.
We can be proud of what weve accomplished and look forward to reaching
even greater heights as the markets stabilize and strengthen.
In the meantime, I wish you all a wonderful experience as you share with and
learn from your industry colleagues from around the world.
Regards,

Jennifer Maki
Executive Director, Vale Base Metals
Chief Executive Officer, Vale in Canada
Ni

Did you know that our operations


in Sudbury, Canada, refine
enough ore to make 8.3 billion
nickel coins a year?
And thats just the beginning.

PDAC is a time to learn as much as we can from


each other. Lets take every opportunity to do so.
