Our Earth's Riches
CIM and Science North are working together to develop a travelling Pan Canadian Mining Exhibit that will be placed for extended stays in various science centres and museums across Canada. The exhibit will be developed, built and managed by Science North with technical support from CIM. The project will be primarily funded by CIM constituents and other mining groups, with significant funding from Science North as well.
The exhibit will help promote mineral literacy through an interactive visitor’s experience aimed to be both educational as well as engaging.
Global Action on Tailings
In light of the global challenges faced around mine waste, particularly tailings, the Global Mineral Professionals Alliance (GMPA) will undertake the Global Action on Tailings initiative. The initiative was announced at a recent meeting of the GMPA – a collaborative partnership between leading professional organizations for minerals internationally – held in Denver, Colorado, in conjunction with the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) Annual Conference and Expo in February 2019.
