LatAm Mining: Calling all industry executives and professionals…..

….because I know you read the blog, guys.

On January 15th the TSX and Fasken Martineau are putting on a live video webcast with a top-level discussion panel. The video webcast is entitled “”Dealflow in Mining” A Current Canadian Perspective” and is aimed at mining people with business (past, present or future) in Latin America particularly.

This video webcast costs nothing to video-attend and you get your invitation by registering with the correct people (see underneath). Perfect for executives (and even people that actually do work in mining companies 🙂, mining analysts (I know you’re out there) and business journalists (I know you’re out there, too) amongst others. Latino mining people especially welcome. Also, please note that one of the aims of the video webcast is to help you get the most out of your visit to the PDAC conference in March, the tips coming from people that know PDAC better than anybody.

Coming up are some of the details you need to get your free participation arranged. Also, click this link or the link below to get in touch with the people organizing the event. Lastly, I’d just like to point out that I get no payment, commission, benefits or anything of the sort for promoting this video webcast; it’s only getting this space because after talking to one of the organizers today I was left very impressed (both with the person and the conference agenda). I believe it to be an excellent initiative and I hope you guys out there can benefit from it.

Please read below for more details and click here for the contact info, or to register or to ask the organizers any further questions. Enjoy, and I hope you make the best of this opportunity, people. It surely beats getting your LatAm info from a snarky blog like this one 😉

“Dealflow in Mining” A Current Canadian Perspective

Toronto Stock Exchange & TSX Venture Exchange/Fasken Martineau Roundtable

January 15, 2009
The Exchange Tower
130 King Street West
Toronto, ON

2008 has been a difficult year for the economy and particularly so for the mining industry as liquidity problems, lower commodity prices and steep declines in market valuations have severely impacted exploration and mining activities. Yet, the new valuations, are prompting strategic reappraisals by financial and industry players and, for some, attractive possibilities are opening up. M&A, restructurings, joint ventures and creative financial arrangements are all, to a greater or lesser degree, being discussed or being implemented.

On January 15th, 2009, the Global Mining Group at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP and TSX Inc., in co-ordination with the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), will host a live video webcast about the current market conditions and developments as they apply to financings and other transactions in the mining sector. The distinguished panel, comprised of investments bankers and other experts will include:

David Cobbold…………….. Managing Director, Equity Capital Markets, CIBC World Markets
Janis Koyanagi …………… Business Development & Strategy, TSX
Kimberley Lok ……………..Sector Advisor, Extractive Industries, Export Development Canada
John Turner …………………Global Mining Group Leader, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP
Elizabeth Wademan…….. Director, Equity Capital Markets, BMO Capital Markets
John Warwick………………Managing Director, Corporate Finance, Paradigm Capital Inc.
Raziel Zisman ………………Global Mining Group, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP (Moderator)

This event has been put together for the benefit of mining executives and professionals located throughout Latin America and will provide topical information on mining finance and deal making. This live video webcast will be especially helpful to participants that will attend PDAC’s Annual Convention in Toronto in early March 2009, as they will arrive with a better understanding of current market conditions and the transactions being contemplated at this time. During PDAC, a function will take place at which participants will be able to meet in person members of the panel and other professionals as well as each other. Details as to time and place will be e-mailed to participants prior to PDAC.
