& Goal

Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) one of the world’s largest conventions for the mineral exploration and development industry faced the challenge of enhancing its media coverage beyond the annual convention. The goal was to leverage its annual convention to ensure PDAC received coverage for a variety of programs, not simply the convention.

The Ask

To highlight the wide range of PDAC’s programs, initiatives, and industry insights to attract media attention and showcase the organization’s activities beyond the convention.

Insights & Strategy

The strategy was to focus on diversified media outreach that targeted a wide range of outlets, including industry publications, mainstream outlets, online platforms, and other media that cover related sectors. The goal was to weave in compelling storytelling, case studies, and thought leadership pieces that demonstrated PDAC’s impact on the mineral exploration and development industry with appropriate key messages.


PRA Communications provided exclusive access to key PDAC programs, initiatives, and industry experts to encourage in-depth reporting, interviews, and feature articles. We offered press releases, media kits, and relevant resources to ensure accurate and up-to-date information is readily available to journalists and influencers.

PRA Communications also fostered strong relationships with journalists, industry influencers, and key opinion leaders covering mining, sustainability, and related fields. We also collaborated on content creation, special features, and dedicated sections that highlight PDAC’s contributions to the mineral exploration and development industry.

The Results

This effort successfully positioned PDAC’s leadership and experts as go-to sources for industry-related insights and commentary, offering valuable perspectives on key trends, challenges, and opportunities. It also resulted in the most coverage the convention has ever received and further developed important relationships with tier-one North American and trade media.
