The Mining Association of BC, one of the oldest associations in the province, represents the collective needs and interests of coal, metal, industrial mineral companies and smelters in British Columbia. In doing so, MABC has come to be regarded as the predominant voice of mining in British Columbia.
We invite you to explore the numerous resources we have on our site all designed to showcase the many facets of the mining industry in BC!

Mining Week 2015 has come to a close and we would like to say Thank You for Celebrating with us! There were 21 events across the province this year; from Smithers to Sparwood, Prince George and Kamloops, British Columbians came together in virtually every corner of the province to celebrate our dynamic industry.
In Vancouver we hosted the first ever sold out Opening Gala, where Minister Bennett officially declared BC Mining Week and kicked off the series of events that followed. More than 150 joined us at the Five Sails as we honoured John McManus as the Mining Person of the Year.
On Thursday, May 7th hundreds coalesced outside the Vancouver Art Gallery for the annual Teck Celebrity Pie Throw. This year the Pie Throw raised an astounding $1,066,184 in support of Mining for Miracles and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The afternoon was, as always, wildly fun, lighthearted but at its core focused on the very important initiative of raising funds to support BC’s sick kids. This year 100% of the funds raised are dedicated to opening a new CAUSES clinic at the BC Children’s Hospital which will use one genetic test to help diagnose kids with rare diseases, saving time, money, travel and stress on the families by getting to a diagnoses and treatment faster.
Karina Briño was once again paired up to go against Gavin Dirom and although Karina’s final total of $18,200 raised overcame Gavin’s $14,000, a little surprise was in store!
A number of Mining Day at the Legislature delegates outside the steps to the legislative buildings.
On Tuesday, March 24, 67 senior mining executives, mining suppliers and MABC partners arrived in Victoria for Mining Day at the Legislature. I am very pleased to say that the day was received by participants and government as an unqualified success.
Last year in February, we hosted our inaugural Mining Day at the Legislature as a team. We brought 48 mining representatives and had 48 meetings with elected and senior government officials. Our objective was to leave a good impression and be invited back.
Having met our goal, this year we aimed to grow the event beyond our initial success. I am happy to report that with 67 delegates, and 60 meetings with 74 government representatives, we executed what has been described as one of the largest coordinated lobby days in the province.
