The by invitation only Denver Gold Forum (DGF), held each year in September, has been the prime conference for the world’s top gold and silver miners to present their cases to an audience of their peers, leading specialist precious metal investors as well as generalist institutional investors and hedge funds. Buy- and sell-side analysts from around the world make up the balance of the participants.. It reckons to be the world’s single largest gathering of precious metal equities and showcases seven-eighths of the world’s publicly traded gold and silver companies when measured by production or reserves.
This year’s event will take place in Denver from September 20th-23rd and numbers the CEOs from virtually all of the West’s quoted top and mid tier primary gold and silver miners and the top royalty companies, among its speakers and participants, as well as a platform of additional keynote specialist speakers covering various aspects of the industry. In recent years it has also added involvement from top explorers and developers who meet the DGF’s strict participation criteria, many of whom will be presenting at the various parallel sessions, or participating in the evening receptions.
As a networking event it is almost unparalleled and it has been noticeable that at past forums a number of executives from companies which may not meet the DGFs entry parameters will frequent the lobby bar at the conference hotel in hope of catching up with some of those attendees they would like to talk to!
I will be attending the event again this year and it will be good to catch up with old friends and acquaintances. Any readers of lawrieongold, or of my columns on Sharppixley.com which I have been writing recently, do email me if you are also attending and you’d like to make contact.
