ROCK TALK FOR DELEGATES

Registration is open for Rock Talk 2022.  Smithers Exploration Group is pleased to announce our annual Rock Talk conference will be going virtual this year and will be happening from 8:30 am-12:30 pm on Wednesday February 23 & Thursday February 24, 2022, on the Zoom platform.  Covid permitting, SEG will have a room available for in-person viewing at the Smithers Curling Rink, at 4216 4 Ave, Smithers, BC, where the conference can be viewed in-person on a large screen with a lunch to follow after the Thursday talks.

The theme this year is “Business as usual, urgently”.  Mineral Exploration in BC needs to continue, thrive and grow to meet upcoming global demands for metals during the transition to solar, wind and tidal energy for the world. Geologists and prospectors play a critical role to support and grow mining resources. SEG supports this growth, and the intent of the Rock Talk 2022 conference is to facilitate the exchange of  geological information and ideas in north and central British Columbia.

Rock Talk conference topics focus on mineral exploration and mine project updates, weighted towards geological information for geologists, however, we strongly encourage all local suppliers and contractors to attend whatever portions of the event they are interested in. We will also include links and information on SEG's Rock Room collection of Cordilleran rock suites.  If you are interested in presenting, drop us a line at rocktalk@smithersexplorationgroup.com

Admission is $25 + GST for each attendee for both days so please feel free to attend whatever sessions interest you. Register today.

Thanks to Minerals North for helping us stage Rock Talk 2022 with a promise of financial aid.   If you’re also interested in helping with sponsorship check out the Sponsorship details below.  Or drop by the SEG table at Roundup 2022 where we will have a table in the foyer on Tuesday February 1.
 

ROCK TALK FOR SPONSORS

In an effort to align the sponsorship structure with the virtual nature of the conference, we have adjusted sponsorship opportunities and values. There are two simple sponsorship opportunities:

PRESENTATION SPONSORSHIP:  $250.00
Recognition of sponsorship with a pre-presentation slide displaying the company logo. Clusters of pre-recorded presentations will play, followed by a live, virtual question period.  Presentation sponsors will have their logo displayed on a slide prior to the start of the presentation cluster, and the MC will read out the names of the sponsoring companies. This sponsorship level also includes your company logo on the Rock Talk 2022 “screen saver” for the conference event. The screen saver will be displayed before the conference starts, at intermission breaks, and after presentations conclude for the day.

OVERALL CONFERENCE SPONSORSHIP: $100.00
Recognition of sponsorship with your company logo on the Rock Talk 2022 “screen saver” for the conference event. This will be displayed before the conference starts, at intermission breaks, and after presentations conclude for the day.

SPONSORSHIP FUNDS ALLOCATION
Sponsorship funds raised in excess of conference costs will help support Smithers Exploration Groups’ operations and continued efforts to provide outreach to northern communities and learning opportunities remotely.

To be a sponsor, please email: rocktalk@smithersexplorationgroup.com
