Mining & Natural Resources

The Canadian mining sector is a multifaceted and highly diversified industry known for its unique risks and hazards. Brokers that specialize in the mining industry must therefore understand the complexities of working in these types of hostile environments, as well as the risk associated with operating highly specialized and expensive machinery. The Magnes Group Inc. takes this responsibility very seriously, subscribing to both the Canadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Export (CAMESE) and the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) in order to stay on top of industry advancements and issues.
