With no Minerals North Conference this spring, consider attending Smithers Exploration Group’s annual Rock Talk. Rock Talk is going virtual this year with 2 half days of presentations under the banner of Advancing Discoveries in a World Class Mineral District. Yes, let’s not forget that for all the difficulties faced by businesses this past year, this is still a region of that continues to draw interest for its immense mineral potential. Learn about significant recent discoveries, including updates from northern BC mineral exploration and mining projects. The registration cost is just $25/attendee.

Minerals North Conferences Remain Postponed
Due to COIVID-19 public health protocols, last year’s Minerals North planned for Quesnel was cancelled. We are also not proceeding at this time with a 2021 conference awarded to Kitimat and planned for the coming spring. Given hosting a Minerals North event is a chance to showcase that community, little consideration is currently underway to produce a virtual Minerals North. In other words, we remain “on hold” till a return to more normal conditions.
In the meantime, the Minerals North Conference Association Board is examining ways to make future Minerals North conferences even more worthwhile for those attending and more valuable for the host community and northern BC. All ideas are on the table--on conference format, purpose and timing. If you have suggestions on how to improve Minerals North, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Provincial Overview of Exploration and Mining in BC 2020
For a description of mineral sector activity in the province and by region, this annual report from the BC Geological Survey is a comprehensive and reliable information piece. Though written in technical language and best understood by geologists, most readers can discern which exploration and mining projects were the most active or produced interesting results. The report can be downloaded from the BC Geological Survey section of the BC government website (www.gov.bc.ca).
