Cancelled: 2020 Yellowknife Geoscience Forum

It is with regret that the NWT & Nunavut Chamber of Mines and the NWT Geological Survey, announce that the 2020 Geoscience Forum, held annually in November in Yellowknife, is cancelled.

Ongoing COVID-19 pandemic effects continue to stymy large public events and organizers have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the North’s largest combined tradeshow and conference. This is the first cancellation in the event’s 48-year history.

STAY POSTED: Organizers will continue to seek an alternative approach to share information on the North’s geoscience, its minerals industry, business opportunities with the minerals industry, and regulatory updates, that are of interest to so many in and outside of the Northwest Territories.
