Here’s what happened on the second day of the show.

Day two of the International Metal Writers Conference just wrapped up, and it was a busy show for the Investing News Network. The team hit the floor hard to speak to companies and industry experts, and of course had the opportunity to take in some presentations.
If you weren’t able to make it to the conference (or if you simply weren’t able to see everything that was on offer), don’t worry. We’ve put together a recap of the highlights of the day. You can also check out our notes from the floor for day one by clicking here.
The second day kicked off with Rick Rule of Sprott US Holdings talking about the importance of people in the pursuit of profit.

Next up was Frank Holmes of US Global Investors, who moderated the panel “One Million Ounces of Gold.” It included presentations from Gran Columbia Gold (TSX:GCM), Klondex Mines (TSX:KDX) and Red Eagle Mining (TSXV:RD).

Later in the morning, attendees had the chance to hear more from Rick Rule, as well as Keith Weiner of Monetary Metals, Contra the Heard’s Benj Gallender, Oreninc’s Kai Hoffman, Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital and John Kaiser of Kaiser Research.

In the afternoon, investors were able to hear more from the exhibiting companies and speakers. They covered different aspects of the resource sector and discussed commodities from copper to uranium.

One of the day’s closing panels was moderated by Andrew Pollard, president of the Mining Recruitment Group, and included Doug Froster of Featherstone Capital, Mark O’Dea of Oxygen Capital, and Eira Thomas of Kaminak Gold (TSXV:KAM). The group discussed how they built and sold their projects in addition to what to look for in a project.
