This time the morning ritual celebrated the “resilience of B.C.-based mineral explorers and developers,” as the Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia sounded the Toronto Stock Exchange’s opening siren. B.C. mines minister Bill Bennett joined the group on its annual investment mission to Toronto, which gives companies “an opportunity to increase awareness of British Columbia as we get prepared for an eventual upswing in the markets,” said AME BC president/CEO Gavin Dirom.
The association quoted TSX figures showing 59% of TSX-listed mineral exploration and mining companies (785 of 1,334) keep head offices in B.C.
Among upcoming Toronto events will be the January 14 Canadian Mining Hall of Fame dinner, this year honouring diamond pioneer Stewart Blusson and Ivanhoe founder Robert Friedland.
