MineralsEd and the Association for Mineral Exploration (AME) are working together to bring elementary students Mineral Exploration Roundup 2018, held at the Vancouver Convention Centre West on January 24th, 2018. The AME’s annual Roundup conference is a premier gathering of exploration geologists, prospectors, and the many mining, consulting and investment companies and individuals who play a role in discovering and developing mineral resources.
On Wednesday, January 24, 2018 four intermediate classes from Lord Beaconsfield Elementary, Dr. George Weir Elementary, and Henry Anderson Elementary, will attend Roundup to learn about rocks, minerals, exploration and mining. At the conference they will meet with professionals working in the mineral exploration industry, and participate in several hands-on learning activities. In preparation to attend Roundup, these students be developed geoscience, mineral exploration and mining projects for display at the conference, and took part in a supportive field trip to a geoscience or mining destination.
