Rock Talk 2019 February 20 and 21 Smithers

Rock Talk 2019 in Smithers is bringing together some of the names that have contributed to making northwest BC one of the most important mining camps in BC.

February 20: Dig into Babine-Nechako mineralized belts with regional experts Tom Richards and Don MacIntyre
February 21: Map the Golden Triangle with JoAnne Nelson and then drill down into GT Gold’s Saddle discoveries with Charlie Greig
February 21: Sample other exciting exploration projects in northern BC

All of this expertise will be presented with access to SEG's fabulous collection of Cordilleran Rock Suites. Tom, Don, JoAnne and Charlie bring it all home in two not-to-be-missed workshops with rocks, core and maps.

As an added bonus before the actual presentations begin, SEG is offering one-on-one time with two of the geologists who laid the foundations of the SEG rock suites. Tom and Don have generously offered the opportunity to go through the rocks with folks who show up on Wednesday morning February 20 at 10 am. 

And the price for all of this?  For $100 you get two workshops, updates on key northern BC projects, all lunches and coffee breaks, two receptions, new SEG cap and all the rocks you want to look at.  Check the brochure for preliminary program details.

AME contract RFPs Deadline February 8

AME has posted two opportunities to help forward its strategic plan for this year. One is a RFP for a Study on the Economic Impact of Mineral Exploration to BC and its Communities; and the other is a Project Manager contract position to support the development of tools and guidance documents for AME members. Both are attached, summarized below and can be found here: https://amebc.ca/who-we-are/careers-at-ame/

Study of the Economic Impact of Mineral Exploration to BC and its Communities

AME is requesting proposals to undertake a study of the economic impact of mineral exploration to British Columbia including communities and Indigenous nations across the province. This study will support AME’s understanding of the benefits that mineral exploration provides to BC and in turn support AME’s work to advocate for its members. This study is primarily intended for AME staff and the board, but some or all of the study may be used in AME documents or publications which may be released to the government, Indigenous nations and the public.

Deadline for submission: February 8th, 2019

Development of Tools and Guidance Documents Contract Project Manager – From February to August 2019

AME is seeking a contract Project Manager to facilitate and manage the development of tools for AME members in the areas of social and environmental performance, Indigenous relations and health and safety management. The position will involve working with AME staff and committees, external experts and production companies to design and develop the tools and guidance documents using a variety of media such as videos, photos, lists, written documents and learning tools that may be presented in hard copy, online, or through social media and apps.

Deadline for applications: February 8th, 2019

Interim Guidelines Notice of Work

Jill Pardoe has asked SEG to give our members a heads-up on something she’s run into trying to use Natural Resource Online Services. Jill advises people currently filing Notices of Work to refer to the interim guidance on submitting NoWs   sheet provided  by Jill and perhaps call Front Counter BC in Smithers for clarification.
