"The conference represents an opportunity to gain global perspective and review current and future investing opportunities, both from the point of investors as well as corporates," said Tony Robson, Co-Head Mining Research, BMO Capital Markets.
"The indications are that 2015, like 2014, will be a year where commodity prices are weak and metal and mining equities are at bear market lows," added David Haughton, Co-Head Mining Research, BMO Capital Markets. "With that comes the potential for opportunities within the sector."
