Kazakhstan Pavilion was officially unveiled at the annual PDAC-2023 exploration, mining, and development exhibition in Toronto, Canada, QazMonitor reports.
Founded in 1932, the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) is best known for its global premiere mineral exploration and mining conference, which attracts up to 25,000 visitors from more than 130 countries.
Regular contributors to the event include leading Canadian companies such as Hatch, CAMECO Corporation, B2Gold, Arras Minerals, Nutrien, Teck Resources Limited, Ion Energy, and others.
The Kazakh delegation was led by the deputy minister of foreign affairs Almas Aidarov, who in his welcoming speech noted that Kazakhstan has participated in this event each year for the past decade.
“However, this year we’ve decided to expand our participation by assembling a high-level delegation and presenting the national pavilion for the first time,” Aidarov said.
Like Canada, Kazakhstan pays great attention to the development of the mining and metallurgical industry, as it is our country's 'second economy', accounting for about 20% of national exports. We invite you to explore over sixty deposits of precious and base metals.
