What does 2010 have in store for today’s metals and mining companies? Executives from 16 of the industry’s fastest growing companies will discuss the future of the sector at NYSSA’s 10 th Annual Metals & Mining Conference.

2009 was a strong year with gold up over 23% in 2009 compared to 2008 and silver up over 70%. The total number of deals and average deal size are expected to grow but some analysts say the fast growth during the recovery of 2009 is not sustainable.
