January 31 @ 10:00 am – 11:45 am
This signature session will provide an overview of mineral exploration and mining activities in British Columbia, Yukon and Alaska in 2021. For the second year in a row, planning for field season took place against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, but as in 2019, the resourcefulness of mineral explorers was on display as commodity prices continued to be at historically high levels. This is a must-attend session for prospectors, exploration geologists, engineers, miners, financial analysts and industry leaders seeking the first big picture year-in-review for 2021 of mineral exploration in the Cordillera.
