March 3 | Goldcorp Presents #DisruptMining

KPMG is proud to be the co-host of #DisruptMining presented by Goldcorp.

Now in its third year, #DisruptMining aims to encourage new ideas, spawn new technologies, and generate new opportunities to tackle the mining industry’s most vexing challenges.

The #DisruptMining challenge offers entrepreneurs a platform to bring disruptive and exponential technologies to the sector. #DisruptMining incentivizes people with exponential technologies and rogue ideas, with a CAD$1 million capital opportunity to bring their disruption to mining.

Finalists will pitch their competing innovations to a “shark-tank”- style panel of cross-industry titans at a live finale event held in March 2019 during the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) annual convention. More than 500 mining executives, investors and financiers will be in attendance, each looking for that one revolutionary idea that will get them to the future of mining, faster.

Proceeds from the #DisruptMining event will support the future of the mining industry through innovation-focused scholarships.
