Geoscience Ireland at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada – PDAC; March 1 – 4, 2015
The Exploration and Mining Division (EMD) and the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI), both of the Department of Communications Energy and Natural Resources, have successfully used the Annual PDAC Convention in Toronto for over 20 years in promoting Ireland as a destination for exploration and mining.
2015 will be no exception, with EMD, GSI, Geoscience Ireland and the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland represented at PDAC which will attract over 25,000 delegates from all over the world.
The Fraser Institute Survey for 2014 ranked Ireland 11th overall – amongst 122 jurisdictions – in its ‘Investor Attractiveness Index’ for 2014. While this represents a slight fall in Ireland’s position, it still ranks 1st for policy and ranks 2nd for investment attractiveness in Europe.
Geoscience Ireland promotes 22 Irish companies providing services in geology, geotechnical and environmental engineering, water services and capacity building in international markets.
