    TORONTO, Aug. 17 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:

    News conference at the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) to release findings
    of new David Suzuki Foundation report, Climate Change and Canadian
    Mining: Opportunities for Adaptation, on the impact of climate change
    and opportunities for adaption in the Canadian mining industry.

    WHEN:

    10:00 to 10:30 a.m. EDT

    WHERE:

    Toronto Stock Exchange, TMX Broadcast Centre, Studio, The Exchange Tower,
    130 King Street West, Toronto

    WHY:

    Because of its dependency on the natural environment, Canada's mining
    sector is particularly vulnerable to the consequences of climate change.
    The impact of climate change on mining is important for all Canadians to
    consider. The Canadian mining industry employs nearly 50,000 people in
    primary mineral extraction alone in more than 115 communities across the
    country and contributes approximately $10 billion a year to the Canadian
    economy.

    -  Jason Prno, Canadian mining researcher and analyst, Trailhead
       Consulting, co-Author of Climate Change and Canadian Mining:
