July 30 - August 2, 2019
Fairmont Hotel Vancouver | Vancouver, British Columbia
An Important Invitation from Legendary Resource Investor, Rick Rule…
Beginning on July 30, in downtown Vancouver…
A small group of world-renowned natural resource investors and expert financial analysts will gather in exclusive behind-closed-door sessions…
Over four dynamic, information-packed days… they’ll reveal their findings and how you can profit from the best gold and resource opportunities in the current markets.
Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Rick Rule and as President and Chief Executive Officer of Sprott U.S. Holdings Inc., I lead a highly skilled team of earth science and finance professionals who enjoy a worldwide reputation for resource investment management.
I’ve dedicated my entire adult life to many aspects of natural resource securities investing…
My company has decades of success finding and profiting from opportunities in natural resources…
I know the sector first hand – I’ve financed hundreds of resource companies…
I've worked with companies big and small, and visited mining sites on every continent except Antarctica.
Combined, these experiences have made me one of the top “go-to-guys” in the resource industry.
I’m delighted to be the returning chairman of the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium this year…
And as your personal host…
I’d like to cordially invite you to join us in one of the world’s best cities – beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.
The timing really couldn’t be better.
You see, while natural resource markets tend to be highly volatile, they have also proven to be extremely cyclical.
“Bear markets are the authors of bull markets – or, in other words, when it comes to commodity prices, what goes down must eventually go up.” —Rick Rule
For investors… the biggest problem is knowing what to do.
That’s why I’m hosting an important behind-closed-door meeting with my closest colleagues and special guests, starting first thing Tuesday morning, July 30, at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
Over four exciting, jam-packed days, we'll discuss the best ways to take full advantage of the unique situation in today’s natural resource market.
I want to take a moment here to point out something.
During the resource bear market that we’ve endured for the last six or seven years, our Symposium has grown every year, which says something about the value offered by the conference to speculators and investors in this sector.
In fact, last year was a record conference for us in terms of attendees and revenues…
And there’s a good chance this year will be even better yet.
There are several good reasons for this.
First of all, we work very hard on our speaker selection…
Every year we gather together a top-notch team… and 2019 is certainly no exception.
“A combination of intelligently selected speakers… resource company entrepreneurs… and ultra-high quality exhibitors… is what has made this long-running conference a success in a very difficult market.” —Rick Rule
So now let me introduce our distinguished keynote speakers… starting with an old friend and one of our most highly reviewed presenters…
James Rickards Editor, Strategic Intelligence
James is the editor of Agora Financial’s Strategic Intelligence and a world-famous consultant to the Pentagon and CIA. He helped the Federal Reserve avoid a complete financial meltdown, and even investigated market activity which predicted 9/11.
He’s also written three New York Times best sellers, The Death of Money (2014), Currency Wars (2011), and The New Case for Gold (2016)…
His latest book, Aftermath: Seven Secrets of Wealth Preservation in the Coming Chaos will be released in July and is available for preorder on Amazon.
Jim will be presenting our keynote address. He’ll combine his unique background as a government insider with his remarkable economic expertise… and reveal how you can navigate in today’s volatile markets.
He’ll be joined by finance guru Nomi Prins, a well-known financial journalist and former international investment banker turned finance industry whistleblower and bestselling author. She’ll address global topics ranging from the economy to the political environment. Nomi

You’ll hear our featured entrepreneurs present the strategies that make their companies successful…
It’s important to listen carefully to these pros because they’ll tell you about the lessons they learned building their companies…
How those lessons drive their own investing today…
And how you can incorporate that knowledge to make YOU a better natural resource investor.
Insight like this, especially in the current market is priceless…
Not only will you listen to these “living legends” speak, you’ll have a chance to see them in action, to participate with them in discussion groups, and socialize face-to-face during breaks and activities.
For example, after hearing our esteemed speakers – several of whom have made hundreds of millions of dollars building natural resource companies… you’ll have the opportunity to tune in as they wander around the Exhibit Hall and question the various companies.
Can you imagine trailing behind a Ross Beaty or a Robert Friedland… checking out who they’re talking to, taking note of the questions they’re asking?
It’s an opportunity that you only experience at this Sprott conference.
The fact is, the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium is the right place, at the perfect time, with the smartest people and…
Some of the most well run companies in the business.
There’s never a bad time to make a good investment… And there’s never a good time to make a bad investment… The most important exercise is to identify the best companies.
Attendees have told us for years that they consider our Exhibitors an essential feature of the conference…
That’s because they’re not simply advertisers waving a check.
Each of our exhibitors must be owned in a Sprott-managed account…
Which means each company has been thoroughly vetted, based on performance, by me and the Sprott team…
And, our money is invested in the exhibitor.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean the share prices of every exhibitor will go up.
But there’s one thing I can say without hesitation…
What we give you is a curated collection of mineral, oil and gas exploration companies that have passed a stringent test.
Throughout the Symposium you’ll have an opportunity to meet and interact with 78 hand-picked, on-site exhibitors…
I know each and every one of the executives personally and I genuinely believe they are among the best at what they do.
You’ll hear about their companies and how they manage their capital…
And they’ll assess the current markets and share their latest findings.
Year after year, our attendees tell us that getting acquainted with these companies and their executives – and mingling with them at our social events – is one of their favorite parts of the Symposium.
“The fact is… for us, the Symposium is actually governed by the attendees. Every good idea I've heard in the conference business… sorry to say, a couple of bad ones too – have come to me from the attendees. They are really an extraordinary group of people.” —Rick Rule
When you join me in Vancouver this summer, you’ll have the chance to meet and network with other like-minded people…
You’ll be in the good company of 700 sophisticated high-net worth speculators, including numerous attendees who manage multimillion dollar portfolios on their own behalf.
Comparing notes with fellow attendees and listening to the questions they pose in workshops or the general sessions… or better yet, in the Exhibit Hall… can yield valuable insight.
My point is… not all of the intelligence at this conference comes from the speakers at the dais.
And let me say this… you won’t be stuck in a seat.
The Sprott Symposium is surprisingly intimate and the availability of our speakers is extraordinary.
We create an environment where attendees can rub shoulders, mingle and spend quality time with presenters and exhibitors… make new friends… and develop contacts.
This is what the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium is all about.
One thing I can tell you for certain…
You won’t find information like this anywhere else but Vancouver this summer.
And speaking of summer…
It’s absolutely the best time for exploring my favorite city in the world.
North America’s Greatest City
Vancouver sits right between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean – so summertime here simply can’t be beat.
It’s the perfect destination for our 2019 Symposium and not just because the city is home to the Toronto Venture Exchange… and the epicenter of the natural resources financing industry…
The upbeat atmosphere makes it a marvelous place to “get away”.
In fact, some attendees like Vancouver so much that they make the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium part of their summer vacation.
There really is something for everyone.
The list is endless…
Besides the many options for culture and entertainment, Vancouver is also known for world-class dining… and fantastic wines.
Make sure to check out the stunning outdoor patios of The Boathouse Waterfront Restaurant, specializing in fresh seafood and steaks…
Or one of Vancouver’s premier raw bars, Blue Water Café.
And if you’re up for a spectacular drive in the mountains, make a reservation at the internationally renowned Araxi restaurant in Whistler.
Wherever you choose, you certainly can’t go wrong.
But even if you don’t feel like venturing out, you’ll still be well taken care of.
Get the Royal Treatment at Our “Castle in the City”
All of our sessions and exhibitions for the Symposium will be held at the recently renovated historic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
Modeled after a 15th century chateau, it’s the city’s traditional grand railway hotel, right in the heart of downtown.
Built in 1939, British royalty King George VI and Queen Elizabeth christened the hotel on their royal tour of Canada. They stayed here right before heading to the U.S.A.
So when I say it’s a castle fit for a king… I’m not kidding.
You’re sure to enjoy the best of luxurious amenities and conveniences as you relax in “your castle”…
What’s wonderful too, is that the Fairmont is right in the middle of the action.
You can explore all the great entertainment, dining, shopping and spectacular scenery that this amazing and compact city has to offer… right outside the hotel.
We’ve secured an exclusive discounted room rate for our conference attendees...
And it gets even better… you can extend your stay three nights pre and post conference at the same group rate.
This is a real bonus if you’re planning to vacation in Vancouver – it’s the perfect jumping off point for day trips into the region.
As you can see – and our attendees always tell us – this luxurious, classic venue and top-notch destination are perfect for the 2019 Sprott Natural Resource Symposium.
My goal, in short…
Is to make sure the 2019 Symposium this July offers more value than any other conference or meeting you’ve ever seen…
Filled with presentations by fantastic speakers and of course, tons of great, actionable ideas. We’ve gone all out to give you the best experience possible.
I want to remind you though, that once again we’re expecting another sell-out crowd…
A savvy, like-minded group drawn by the popularity and track record of this long running conference.
They’ll be joining us in Vancouver to get all of the important details about the state of the market today…
And to find out about the top natural resource companies to own for the best chance of locking in life-changing profits… straight from the mouths of experts.
One thing is for sure…
When you attend this Symposium, you’ll leave armed with the knowledge you need to pursue financial success in the coming months…
You’ll have access to the kinds of ideas the average investor will simply never hear about.
I don’t want you to miss out.
