Minerals North 2014

Nearly 500 delegates and exhibitors will descend upon Vanderhoof on May 21-23 for the annual Minerals North Conference.

Vanderhoof – Nearly 500 delegates and exhibitors will descend upon Vanderhoof on May 21-23 for the annual Minerals North Conference.

Minerals North is an annual gathering of representatives from mining and exploration companies, service providers, local and provincial politicians, and northern communities. Minerals North is a venue for developing business relationships and providing a northern perspective on mining.

The first Minerals North Conference was held in 1989. Each year the event is held in a different community, and this is the first time the Conference has been held in Vanderhoof. This event is expected to be the largest conference ever held in Vanderhoof.

Chairperson Brian Frenkel says “ This is a fantastic opportunity for Vanderhoof to help showcase the mineral opportunities in the North” “ Even though the economic conditions have not been favourable to the mining industry over the past few years we have had great response to the conference in regards to attendance and corporate sponsorship.”

This year’s conference will feature speakers from the mining industry, the provincial government, and first nations. The conference will also feature a minerals art show, a mining tradeshow and will have a youth education component.

This year’s Conference has sold out all of its tradeshow booths, and has exceeded its early bird registration goals. Conference organizers say that Minerals North 2014 is on track to meet their goal of 400 delegates and 170 tradeshow registrants.

The Conference will be held at the Vanderhoof Arena, Gospel Chapel, and the Nechako Valley Senior Secondary High School.
