2020 Minerals North will be hosted in Quesnel BC.   Program details will be posted here as they are confirmed.  

As a result of the joint statement from the Minister of Health and BC’s provincial health officer calling for the cancellation of events over 250 people, the City of Quesnel and Minerals North Conference Association are cancelling Minerals North 2020. Organizers will be reaching out to sponsors, speakers, venues, and those already registered as soon as possible to discuss next steps. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work out a process for reimbursement.
