Gold Forum Americas / XPL-DEV 2021

Gold Forum 2021 in the shadow of the pandemic

Denver Gold Group proceeds with Gold Forum Americas / XPL-DEV 2021 as a hybrid virtual and in-person event.

Each year, we look forward to re-engaging with all Denver Gold Group’s stakeholders in person at Gold Forum Americas / XPL-DEV.  Following the conversion of last year’s event to a virtual-only arrangement, the 2021 Gold Forum will combine virtual and in-person participation.
