Last week, PDAC (Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada) was held in Canada. Arctic Consensus was present, represented by CEO Lise-Lotte, who was part of a large delegation from Greenland and Denmark.  The trip was arranged by Dansk Industri, Greenland Business Association and the Danish Consulate in Toronto.

The delegation from Greenland and Denmark, consisted of 54 participants from 35 different businesses and organisations, and it also had Vittus Qujaukitsoq as a political participant. Apart from participating in the convention, the delegation was also invited to a seminar at the Danish Consulate in Toronto, where the focus was on the perspectives on mining, with presentations from Greenlandic, Canadian and private actors.

As part of the conference, Greenland Day was held on the 2nd of March, where there were presentations regarding the infrastructure in Greenland, the new Greenlandic mineral strategy, and Greenland as a large provider of rare earth materials. There were, in general, at the convention and on Greenland Day, a large interest in the Greenlandic actors, and the possibilities for the mining industry in Greenland.
