This will be followed by an online event on March 10-11.

"We recognize that staying connected is especially important and this year's format ensures everyone has the opportunity to participate in the world's premier mineral exploration and mining convention," PDAC said.

The event was held online-only this year for the first time in its history due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

President Felix Lee declared the event a success in mid-March, saying the breadth and quality was "top notch and that was made clear from the amount of participant engagement from around the globe".

The 2020 event was held just before the global pandemic was declared, with organisers then urging the plus-23,000 attendees to monitor for symptoms after learning three had tested positive for COVID-19.

PDAC said health and safety remained a top priority and it would adhere to Canadian and local government directives and implement appropriate health and safety measures.

"We understand that these requirements may evolve and will ensure all attendees are kept informed of any new developments," it said.
