The Minerals South conference is organized by the East Kootenay Chamber of Mines (EKCM), a non-profit organization actively promoting resource extraction interests in southeastern British Columbia. More than 100 people from B.C.’s mining and natural resource sector gather to network, exchange ideas and technologies, and share knowledge.
The Minerals South conference is not only a chance to showcase industry innovation and cutting-edge technologies being developed and implemented in the region, but it is also offers professional development, business and employment opportunities for individuals and companies in the area. “Whether you are new to the mining resource industry or have been in the business for a long time, this conference offers everyone – suppliers, workers, post-secondary students, employers – a chance to gain new knowledge and connections and keep up-to-date on the latest regulations. It is a much anticipated opportunity to stimulate exploration in the East Kootenay. In addition to technical presentations on projects in the area, Minerals South offers mining companies and suppliers a common venue to discuss solutions to mining and exploration-related issues.”
Other Minerals South highlights include a short course, “two” open to the public talks, two-full days of technical talks, a trade show, displays of paleontology fossils, drill core and field specimens of rock and ore, a school program attended by elementary students and a delegate field trip.
The East Kootenay Chamber of Mines organizes and hosts the Minerals South Conference and Tradeshow every two years, alternating with the Chamber of Mines of Eastern BC. It is its primary fundraiser. To register, become a sponsor, or find out more visit www.ekcm.org.
