Cogent was pleased to attend both the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC) and the AME BC Mineral Roundup Conference held in Vancouver, BC at the end of January.
With upwards of 100 workshops and presentations and over 500 exhibiting companies, the VRIC is the largest of all annual tradeshows in Vancouver. Cogent was pleased to be among professionals and participants in the mining industry who gathered to network, share ideas, and learn about key issues and trends. Key topics discussed include mine optimization, expansion of resources and operations, and industry growth and optimism.
Following shortly after the VRIC, AME BC hosted its 30th annual Mineral Roundup Conference which also took place in downtown Vancouver. The Roundup Conference showcased the extent of mining expertise in BC and the opportunities in this province and abroad. As a delegate, the Roundup Conference provided us with the opportunity to connect with a wide range of professionals from mining companies, suppliers and consultants to government groups and industry associations. Cogent gained and shared valuable insight into the latest developments in mining by speaking with experts first hand.
Both of these conferences clearly demonstrated the optimistic outlook on the mining industry in BC and worldwide. We are looking forward to the next time we can connect with world mining leaders face to face.
