Vision & Mission

In addition to its traditional membership of those involved in the economics and finance of mining, the Management and Economics Society, or MES (formerly the Mineral Economics Society), was expanded to encompass members involved in all aspects of the management of companies active in the mining sector.

MES sponsors events that provide a forum for industry professionals to share experiences, insights and ideas on topics relating to the economic, management and financial aspects of the mining business. In addition to technical sessions at the annual CIM Conference & Exhibition, MES holds symposia and discussion groups. These have provided information on topical issues within the field of mine finance, mineral economics and management issues facing the industry.

MES uses its donations and profits generated from symposia to support supplemental educational programs in Canadian universities on topics related to mineral economics.

MES has supported adjunct professor programs at the University of Toronto, Queen’s University and the University of British Columbia, as well as initiatives at other universities.
