By February 26, 2019No Comments

On March 3-6, 2019, Major Drilling will return to the annual Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) Convention as a Premier Sponsor. Major Drilling is creating several experiences that add value to the PDAC 2019 experience.

  • At BOOTH #330, Major Drilling’s knowledgeable drilling experts are hosting convention attendees. Here, conference participants can network and learn about the many services Major Drilling offers including innovative mine services, percussive drilling such as dewatering, rotary drilling, surface exploration including sonic, and underground coring.
  • Convention-goers can develop their professional persona with a FREE HEADSHOT, courtesy of Major Drilling, on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday (March 3-5) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Attendees looking for a place to network and relax can utilize the spacious MAJOR DRILLING FOOD PAVILION, Level 800, Trade Show Floor, beside the headshot booth.
  • Participants can also get an up-close look at the innovative U600 MOBILE UNDERGROUND CORE DRILL ON DISPLAY beside the Major Drilling Food Pavilion.

PDAC encourages mining and exploration best practices in technical, operational, environmental, safety and social performance. Major Drilling supports PDAC’s goals and its efforts to connect the worldwide mining and exploration community through its annual convention in Toronto, Ont., Can.

Major Drilling’s ongoing partnership activities with PDAC include supporting its Student-Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop (S-IMEW). The two-week, hand-on workshop is held each year to provide  geoscience students with a unique opportunity to put their education into practice before entering the workforce. In 2018, Major Drilling hosted S-IMEW students on site in Sudbury, Ont., Can.
