Your personal host will be Rick Rule, recognized by The Mining Journal as one of the 10 most influential people in mining, and our returning Symposium chairman.


With accolades from the 2016 event still ringing in our ears, we’re excited to announce that the historic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver will once again be the site of the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium – July 25-28, 2017.

Rick Rule and the whole team put the entirety of their energy and passion into organizing this event, insuring that last year’s outstanding presentation will be surpassed in 2017:

• The keynote speakers they choose are top-notch; people the audience values and respects, and people they have long relationships with.

• They are lining up the top-rated experts from mining companies, resource stocks and precious metals, and they’ll be assessing the current markets, telling you about their own companies, and what they do with their own money.

• Rick’s mission for the Symposium is much different than anything you’ve ever seen or experienced. His allegiance is to the attendees—not to a sponsor with a check in his hand.

• In other words, our exhibitors aren’t just advertisers. They’re content.

• Rick and his team vet every exhibitor before they come to the Symposium. They’re invited on a performance basis – he knows the executives personally and Sprott has invested in every listed exhibitor.

• Rick genuinely believes that they are among the best at what they do. It’s important to note that each of these exhibitors are owned in Sprott managed accounts, so while they may not succeed as speculations, Rick and the Sprott team have studied them all.

Without a doubt, Rick Rule and his team shape the Vancouver Natural Resource Symposium into a dynamic event to attend—and be a part of.

You’ll be rubbing shoulders with high-net-worth, like minded individuals whose collective knowledge is considerable.

And what’s more, you’ll have a chance to see them in action, to participate with them in discussion groups, and socialize during breaks and activities.

For example, after hearing our esteemed speakers – several of whom have made hundreds of millions of dollars building natural resource companies – you’ll have the opportunity to listen in as they wander around the exhibit hall and question the various companies. You’ll watch deals being made, in real time!

Insight like this especially in the current market… is truly priceless.

This is your invitation to join us at the Fairmont Vancouver – July 25-28, 2017 – in the heart of downtown for four jam-packed days full of activity and exciting events.


Along with Rick Rule and his staff, everyone at the conference division of Opportunity Travel is working hard to make sure that the 2017 Vancouver Symposium will be the finest you’ve ever attended.

Simply put, this event is the absolute best place to find the world’s most knowledgeable, seasoned experts and most valuable companies in the resource industry.
