March 4, 2022 - March 5, 2022
We are currently planning for the March 2022 MIF to return to an in-person format. We will update our status by early September 2021.
The best way to make money in this industry is to learn about great companies before the other guys.
That's what the Metals Investor Forum is all about. Unlike other resource investor conferences, the Metals Investor Forum brings you a curated list of companies followed by one or more of the newsletter editors that host it.

Most stocks Chen likes are small caps. Some are very liquid, for example Sarepta which is his biggest winner for 2016, easily has over 100 million dollar worth of shares changing hands in a day. Same for IMMU in 2020, which was taken over for 22 billion. However some juniors are not and hard to accumulate. Chen occasionally did offer good opportunities in private placement that he or his family participated in.
Chen has a passion for mining, he personally visited many mining projects around the world.

The companies presenting at the Metals Investor Forum are as vetted as it gets - they have already cleared the high hurdle of earning a recommendation from the newsletter writers' as companies with excellent management teams, great financials and promising properties.
All newsletter writers stress that the first quality on that list – excellent management – is essential to the success of a junior mining company. The problem is that it’s hard to assess management without being able to look them in the eye and ask the questions that matter to you.
The Metals Investor Forum gives you that time. Most companies will be represented by their President or CEO, giving attendees the valuable opportunity to formulate a firsthand opinion, while also getting a complete company update.
When: Friday, March 4th and Saturday, March 5th from 9:00am-4:30pm
Where: 75 Lower Simcoe Street, Toronto, Ontario M5J 3A6 Canada
Cost: Free to Attend with Invite & Pre-Registration
Join other well-educated investors, company management, brokers and analysts and of course the newsletter writers at an event designed to provide attendees with the most up-to-date information available.
We've created a schedule that provides the perfect balance between time listening and time talking. A select group of companies, handpicked for their growth potential, will take you through their assets and upcoming plans.
The newsletter writers will also step up to the podium during the day to discuss the current market, commodity outlooks, and trading tactics designed to help you make money today.
Presentations will be interspersed with two hours of catered breaks, giving you ample time to meet company management or the newsletter writers face-to-face.
