Mining Matters is a charitable organization dedicated to bringing knowledge and awareness about Canada’s geology and mineral resources to students, educators and the general public.

Mining Matters
develops and implements its programs with the help of financial sponsorships, donations and in-kind contributions from the mineral and aggregate industries, individuals, foundations, corporations and government. This funding is the foundation that allows us to continue with our important work. Our success depends on the commitment of the many companies and individuals who share our vision of bringing Earth science to life. With your support, we continue to provide current information about the importance of rocks, minerals, metals and mining in everyday life and the diverse career opportunities available in the minerals industry to students, educators and the public.

 An official charitable receipt will be issued for your contribution.
