The PDAC 2023: The World's Premier Mineral Exploration & Mining Convention is one of the most traditional and important events for the mining sector, promoted by the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) and held in Toronto, Canada. During the convention, several players from the mining sector, such as mining companies, investors, legal offices, and governmental representatives, will gather for educational programming, networking events, and outstanding business opportunities.
The presence of the SGB-CPRM in the PDAC 2023 is essential since the organization and availability of geoscientific information through meetings with companies and international entities, the dissemination of products and services at the stand in Brazil, and technical lectures is fundamental for increasing the attraction of foreign investment in the country.

Additionally, he brings more information about recent production of the Geological Survey of Brazil related to critical and strategic minerals.
Dr. Rizzotto will present an overview of the Geological Survey of Brazil, from its structure to the collection of projects developed over the Brazilian Platform (onshore and offshore), mineral assets for bidding, and future actions towards the country's development.
