|Mining is one of BC’s largest and oldest industries and BC Mining Week provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the contribution of the modern industry to British Columbians. BC Mining Week is declared each year by the Legislature of British Columbia.
This year, BC Mining Week 2016 takes place from May 8th to May14.
This celebration has a long history in BC, the first BC Mining Week took place over 25 years ago in Vancouver! The BC Mining Week committee, chaired by the Mining Association of BC, is comprised of volunteers
|from a variety of companies, associations and institutions associated with the mining sector in BC. The dedicated hard work of the committee members and the strong support from our sponsors has fueled the ever-growing success of BC Mining Week celebrations each and every successive year.
What began as a celebration in Vancouver many years ago has now spread province-wide across communities across the province who want to participate in the recognition of the contribution of the mining sector in BC!
