More than 1,200 attendees from six continents have registered to attend the BMO Capital Markets Global Metals & Mining Conference, one of the most comprehensive mining institutional investor events in the world.

The 17th annual event is taking place in Hollywood, Florida from February 25 to February 27, 2008. It will provide international investors the opportunity to meet senior management of 230 leading mining companies from around the world, including Australia, Canada, China, Russia, South Africa, United States and the United Kingdom, among others.

“BMO Capital Markets welcomes all of its North American and international guests. The global metals and mining sector is continuing its spectacular growth and Canada has maintained a central role in supporting this rapidly evolving industry,” said Eric Tripp, Co-President of BMO Capital Markets.

“BMO Capital Markets remains committed to investing in global mining, and as a firm, is embracing the incredible opportunities presented by the geographical potential we see here at home and beyond North America,” Mr. Tripp added.

As a recognized leader to the Metals & Mining sector, BMO Capital Markets anticipates the increasingly global nature of the industry and the continued rapid growth of the mid-cap sector to be among the key themes that will dominate the conference.
