BRAZIL: A LAND OF GREAT MINERAL OPPORTUNITIES
The PDAC – Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada – 2012 International Convention, Trade Show and Investors Exchange broke yet another record with over 30,000 people attending the 80th gathering at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in March.
Since 1998, Brazil has achieved an important position in the international marketplace by virtue of its first organized participation in the PDAC. At the PDAC 2012, the Brazil Pavilion establishes its presence through the coordination of ADIMB -Agency for the Technological Development of the Brazilian Mining Industry, and support of IBRAM – The Brazilian Mining Association and Brazilian Federal Government, represented by entities linked to the Ministry of Mines and Energy – the Secretariat of Geology, Mining and Mineral Processing, SGM, the National Department of Mineral Production, DNPM, and the Geological Survey of Brazil, CPRM.
INVESTMENT IN BRAZIL
Brazil has one of the largest mineral repositores in the world and is an important producer and exporter of high quality ores. That’s why Mining is one of the strengths of the Brazilian economy.The Mining industry is responsible for the positive balance of Brazil’s trade, and the outlook of this economic activity is extremely optimistic for the coming decades.
The Brazilian mining industry currently finds itself in a time of vigorous growth, thanks both to the profound structural changes that the country has experienced and the social and economic situation in which the world is in.
Brazil’s mining potential is significant. To date, about less than 30% of its immense territory is known through geological surveys in an appropriate scale for this activity. The indigenous areas, that account for 13% of this territory and 25% of the Amazon, are among regions that may have their mining potential assessed, as well as the coastal area, located along the Brazilian continental platform.
PDAC 2013 will be held from March 3-6, 2013 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
