Virtual Mining Scavenger Hunts

Explore five different mining communities across B.C. and learn all about B.C.’s mining heritage and legacy, the different minerals mined in B.C, and mining and the environment. At each stop, participants will be challenged to find information from a variety of interactive online sources and will be given a series of questions to answer.
