On April 1, 2014, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) underwent Devolution. For Northwest Territories Geoscience Office clients, this has resulted in some modest changes, mainly to our phone numbers and a few job titles. Click on the Contact Us link above for our current contact information.

For more information on Devolution, visit the GNWT's Devolution website.

The Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO), a Division of the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment, Government of the Northwest Territories, advances geoscience knowledge of the Northwest Territories for the benefit of Northerners and all Canadians. We do this through the delivery of geoscience research, analysis of mineral and petroleum resources, and by offering excellence in digital data management.

Geoscience Forum

The Yellowknife Geoscience Forum provides an intimate setting for the exchange of information on mineral and petroleum exploration, resource development activities, and government and academic geoscience research across Canada's North. The Forum consists of a trade show and a technical session of oral and poster presentations.

The 42nd Annual Geoscience Forum will be held November 25-27, 2014.
