The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) holds a yearly international convention in Toronto that focuses on mineral exploration. It is one of the most important in the mining industry as it highlights the latest developments, trends and innovations in the sector.

Chile is one of the main exporters of minerals worldwide and their participation in the convention helps to attract visitors to the country in order to expand exploration campaigns and investment opportunities in the Chilean mining sector.

Minera Tres Valles was one of fifty Chilean companies to participate this year by presenting its project in the Core Shack of the convention on the 6th and 7th of March. This opportunity allowed for a public announcement of the project while demonstrating how its process focuses on producing copper in a modern and sustainable manner.

The Minera Tres Valles team at PDAC 2018 was led by its CEO, Luis Vega, alongside the VP of Corporate Relations, Rafael Pérez de Arce, and the VP of Exploration and Business Development, Gilberto Schubert. Additionally, Rick Rule, the Chief Investment Officer of Sprott Resource Holdings, which currently controls 70% of the mining project, was present to support Minera Tres Valles.
