A MESSAGE FROM PREMIER JOHN HORGAN
As Premier of the Province of British Columbia, I am very pleased to welcome everyone to the Association for Mineral Exploration’s Roundup 2018, celebrating Mineral Exploration Week in British Columbia.
Mineral exploration is active in every region of British Columbia, and is prevalent in nearly one hundred countries globally. AME’s Roundup 2018 is an opportunity for us to celebrate technical advancements in the field, as well as spotlight AME’s role in discovering necessary metals needed to propel us into a low-carbon future. Roundup 2018 also allows us to acknowledge the successes made by the industry in engaging Indigenous and rural communities.
I would like to take this time to welcome all of the students in attendance from BC and abroad. I hope that Roundup 2018 will give you a chance to discover the roles that metals and minerals play in our lives, as well as explore over 120 career options available in the mineral exploration and mining industry in BC.
Congratulations to the Association for Mineral Exploration on their 35th consecutive conference! I would also like to acknowledge the organizers and supporters of this event for all of their hard work and dedication. Have an excellent Roundup 2018!
HONOURABLE JOHN HORGAN
PREMIER OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
