TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2011) - Join Matthieu Debost, Head of Equities – Europe, BMO Capital Markets, on Tuesday, March 1 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a discussion of investment trends in the metals and mining industry, including a look at investor attitudes and market sentiment towards the sector.

"Compared to last year, we're seeing several new factors impacting the industry," said Mr. Debost. "The global growth outlook has been raised several times, the U.S. economic outlook has improved significantly in the last three months, and supply issues are continuing to tighten markets. While precious metals continue to attract lots of appetite, we are seeing more and more interest in economically sensitive commodities such as iron ore, coal and copper."

Mr. Debost will discuss:

  • Some of the companies that are attracting particular interest at the conference;
  • New and important trends in the mining industry and what these mean to investors; and
  • Challenges facing the mining industry.
