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.
Scott Broughton (Chair of MABC), Karina Briño (President & CEO of MABC) and the Honourable Bill Bennett (Minister of Energy and Mines) with provincial declaration of Mining Week 2014.
Mining Week is our annual opportunity to come together as an industry to celebrate the work that is done every day by the thousands of British Columbians that make up the BC mining industry. It is a chance to reflect on the past year, celebrate our successes and contributions and raise awareness about our important industry.
Mining Week 2014 was May 11 – 17th this year and more than 5000 British Columbians participated in Mining Week events across the province.
Tickets are now on sale for our annual BC Mining Week kickoff and Mining Person of the Year Award Reception. Each year the BC mining industry comes together to celebrate the industry and one individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the industry in the year previous. This prestigious event is one not to be missed in the BC mining community.
