The North American Iron Ore Industry once again seems to be at a crossroad. After enjoying record iron ore prices between 2010 and 2013, followed by a severe downturn with the dramatic slump in iron ore prices that started in late 2013, the industry appears to slowly recover, and some signs of a potential upswing are looming on the horizon. Far from the huge production sustained by the three major iron ore players — BHP-Billiton, Rio Tinto and Vale —, our industry tries to find its way to differentiate itself through Quality, Innovation and Productivity. Even, if there are some bright sides, challenges are significant and the 7th North American Iron Ore Symposium intends to be a forum to discuss these challenges and their solutions.
This 7th symposium will focus on the following:
- Iron Ore Resources
Co-chairs: Serge Perrault & Boyd Eisenbraun
- New Project Development
Co-chairs: Guy Saucier & George Hudak III
- Mining Operations
Co-chairs: Daniel Gagnon & Dennis Murr
Co-chairs: Maxime Couillard & Nick Sosalla
Co-chairs: Michel Garant & Shashi Rao
Co-chairs: François Séguin & Ryan D. Siats
The 7th North American Iron Ore Symposium is organized jointly with SME - Minnesota section.
