About Mining4Life

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

Mining4Life is an initiative backed by the global mining industry. We invest in the economic and social well-being of communities around the world by helping to create and support sustainable health and education solutions for children in need.


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 $20.0 million has been raised for child health and education initiatives around the world. Net proceeds to date of $17.1 million mean 90% of the funds we raise go directly to our beneficiaries.
