Later this month, the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC) will gather over 300 junior mining companies, over 100 expert speakers and over 5,000 investors to highlight allocation opportunities in critical commodities.
Given historically high inflation, recessionary fears, geopolitical tensions and the shift away from fossil fuels, the mining sector is once again in the spotlight for its potential for value appreciation in turbulent times.
VRIC attendees can participate in a variety of panels and talks over the two-day event – January 29-30th from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Vancouver Convention Centre – including sponsored breakfasts and lunches, fireside chats, sector-spanning corporate presentations and macro discussions about what 2023 has in store for gold, silver, copper and uranium.
Day One is noteworthy for corporate presentations from the likes of Sokoman Minerals, Scottie Resources, C3 Metals, Silvercorp Metals, Whitehorse Gold and Puma Exploration, among many other mineral explorers, developers and producers.
There will also be fireside chats with Former Premier of British Columbia, Christy Clark, and Former Premier of Saskatchewan, Brad Wall.
The day closes with a panel pondering where smart money will go in 2023 headlined by natural resource luminary, Rick Rule, currently President and CEO of Sprott US Holdings, Frank Giustra, President and CEO of Fiore Financial, and Ross Beaty, Founder and Chairman of Pan American Silver and Equinox Gold.
Day Two’s marquee events include discussions on gold and deglobalization, both featuring best-selling author, Robert Kiyosaki, of Rich Dad Poor Dad fame, as well as a focused analysis on how to profitably maneuver the uranium sub-sector lead by Rick Rule.
Corporate presentations will showcase the future prospects of Banyan Gold, Western Uranium & Vanadium, Sun Summit Minerals and Troilus Gold, to name just a few.
Randy Smallwood, the President and CEO of Wheaton Precious Metals, is also scheduled to sit down for a fireside chat moderated by Jay Martin, the President and CEO of Cambridge House International, the tech, mining and public venture capital brand behind VRIC.
By the end of the conference, investors will be better-positioned to capitalize on the global natural resource landscape as demand rises with electrification, deglobalization and population growth, and an increasing number of nations collaborate with junior miners to secure long-term commodity supplies.
Continuing our From the Floor series, The Market Herald will be live from VRIC with highlights for investors throughout the event.
