Geoscience Forum and Trade Show showcases geology and mineral exploration

WHITEHORSE—The 42nd annual Geoscience Forum and Trade Show will be hosted in Whitehorse by the Yukon Chamber of Mines, November 15 to 19.

Premier Darrell Pasloski, Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources Scott Kent, and Minister of Economic Development Currie Dixon will be in attendance. Yukon-based mining and exploration companies, researchers and businesses will also be present. Discussion topics will include initiatives, progressive partnerships and new developments to move Yukon’s mining industry forward.

“The Government of Yukon is proud to be involved in the geoscience forum,” Energy, Mines and Resources Minister Scott Kent said. “The forum is an unparalleled opportunity to build relationships and to share ideas, information and expertise across our geoscience industry.”

“Mining is Yukon’s largest private industry. The Geoscience Forum provides an opportunity for governments, industry and stakeholders to connect and positively impact our economy and communities,” Pasloski said. “The mining and mineral sector has always been an important part of Yukon’s identity and its growth over the past decade has significantly contributed to making our territory the best place in Canada to live, work, play and raise a family.”

This year’s forum will kick off with a Minerals Investment Forum covering what to look for when investing in mineral companies and will include presentations from some of Yukon’s major mining companies.
