About Mining4Life

Few industries are as connected to communities as mining. Not only does the industry provide thousands of jobs in communities around the world, the metals and minerals it produces also helps to build them.

Mining4Life is an industry-wide initiative backed by dozens of global mining companies all with a mandate of investing in the economic and social well being of communities. It helps create and support sustainable health and education solutions for children in need around the world.


The Event

Mining4Life is an annual industry event that takes place on the final night of the Prospectors and Developers Association Conference (PDAC) in Toronto. It is a chance to network with C-Suite level attendees and to demonstrate the difference one industry can make by working together. Since the event started in 2010 more than $17.6 million has been raised for child health and education initiatives around the world. Net proceeds of $15.2 million to date means an unprecedented 90% of funds raised go directly to our beneficiaries.
