Association of Mineral Exploration Roundup (AME)
January 22 - January 25
AME is the lead association for the mineral exploration and development industry based in British Columbia. Established in 1912, AME represents, advocates, protects and promotes the interests of thousands of members who are engaged in mineral exploration and development in B.C. and throughout the world. AME encourages a safe, economically strong and environmentally responsible industry by providing clear initiatives, policies, events and tools to support its membership.
We invite you to join us at one of the world’s premier technical mineral exploration conferences, AME’s Mineral Exploration Roundup 2018 will take place January 22-25, in beautiful Vancouver, BC. Every year, explorers from around the world come together to share their latest findings, stories, successes and innovative ideas to further the exploration industry.
As the industry gains momentum, and sees a resurgence in many regions, Roundup’s theme, “New Generation of Discovery” will bring experienced mineral explorers together to examine new geoscience ideas, innovative technologies and creative business solutions to lead the way to success. Everything from 3D/VR/AR applications to undiscovered places to unlikely partnerships – the opportunities are here.
2018 marks AME’s 35th consecutive conference and while new ideas continue to flow, we can’t forget our renowned foundational programming in our Core Shack, Technical Sessions, and Student Poster session. Leading up to the conference we will be providing a full slate of short courses that will include the Structural Geology of Canadian Ore deposits, the Geology of Zinc deposits and Geometallurgy for Geologists. And if you’re looking to involve your family, our public outreach presentation, Discovery Day, is an event for an explorer of any age to learn more about minerals and exploration in a fun and accessible way.
We would like to thank the 6,000 participants from overn 40 countries who attended Mineral Exploration Roundup 2017, and on behalf of the Roundup Organizing Committee, we look forward to seeing you again at Vancouver’s Canada Place January 22-25, 2018.
