Learn about the BCRMA
Join us to learn about The BC Regional Mining Alliance (BCRMA), a new partnership initiative between the Tahltan Central Government, the Nisga’a Nation, the Province of British Columbia and AME. The BCRMA is working to boost the mineral exploration and mining industry, support long-term community sustainability and help to build a better BC with the help of several dynamic exploration companies working within the Golden Triangle area.
About The Gathering Place
Presenters in “the Gathering Place” will represent Indigenous groups, Industry and Government and combinations thereof. Through the sharing of stories of early engagement and respectful relationships, they will help us to better understand why working towards reconciliation enables the building of long-term relationships and mutually beneficial projects. They will also provide practical tips to help all explorers and indigenous communities to work together. It can be said that these are two of “the elements for discovery”-early engagement and relationship building.
