Celebrate Mining Week Virtually!

In honour of Mining Week celebrations across Canada this spring, we’ve compiled a series of DIY activities for kids about Earth science, the minerals industry and its importance to society. We like to think of our DIY activities as GEMS, because they explore
Geology, Engineering, Mining and Sustainability.

So grab your hard hat and get ready to dig into a mine load of fun!
