About Us

MineralsEd is an educational organization operating in British Columbia that is dedicated to encouraging and supporting Earth science, mineral resources and mining education in schools.

Established in 1991 as a teacher-industry partnership program, our main roles are to support teachers in their development of classroom materials related to minerals, mining and geoscience, and to deliver workshops, field trips and other mineral-relevant learning opportunities for teachers and students.

Our goals are to foster a well-informed public through school education based on accurate and balanced minerals information, and to stimulate young peoples’ interest in minerals industry careers. MineralsEd is a non-partisan, charitable organization.


MineralsEd respectfully acknowledges the Indigenous Peoples and lands in all of British Columbia. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the traditional and unceded lands of the Coast Salish peoples – the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations – upon whose lands our office is located.
