President of The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada to Address Economic Club

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 22, 2009) - Mineral exploration companies are the ambassadors of the global mining industry at thousands of sites around the world. Jon Baird, President of Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, will outline Canada's leadership in developing guidelines for corporate social responsibility in the mineral industry with the introduction of e3 Plus: A Framework for Responsible Exploration. Baird will also discuss why the PDAC is convinced that voluntary guidelines will build healthier, more socially responsible companies than the approach used in proposed legislation, which is based on the belief that good corporate behavior can only be achieved and enforced by legal means.
