Minerals North is the non-profit Association that facilitates the hosting of the annual Minerals North Conference. This event is hosted by communities in northern BC and has the largest northern mining conferences in Western Canada. The warm hospitality that derives from community involvement ensures that Minerals North is distinct from any other mining conference in British Columbia.
The event provides an opportunity for local communities to showcase their capacity to service the mineral industry, for community leaders to learn about economic and policy issues that affect the minerals sector and for the industry to be informed of local issues and community goals.
The objectives of the conference are to:
- Establish contacts and build working relationships
- Inform communities about mining and exploration projects and issues
- Hold a dialogue on the impacts and benefits of mining
