The Association for Mineral Exploration’s 2019 Roundup conference concluded on Thursday, January 31, wrapping up a week of exciting announcements in support of the industry from the provincial and federal governments. This included the provincial government’s decision to make both the Mining Flow-Through Share tax credit and the B.C. Mining Exploration Tax Credit permanent incentives to support investment in the industry and drive job growth.
Held at the Vancouver Convention Centre on the shared traditional territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples, this year’s Roundup brought together more than 6,660 delegates, including governments, leaders, investors, and suppliers from 49 countries, to discuss industry trends and opportunities for collaboration in B.C. and globally. The 2019 theme of “Elements for Discovery” was reflected in the breadth of speakers and sessions showcasing successes and innovations, and looking ahead to the industry’s role in our shared low-carbon economy.
“Year after year, Roundup strives to offer a space for industry leaders to come together in the sharing of ideas and perspectives to build long lasting relationships for mutual success,” said AME Roundup Organizing Committee Chair David Gale. “As we look to the future, we acknowledge the ongoing support of our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, delegates, and volunteers, without whom the continued success of Roundup would not be possible.”
Highlights from the 2019 Mineral Exploration Roundup include:
“We are pleased with the province’s show of support for our mineral exploration and mining industry,” said AME President and CEO Edie Thome. “Through incentives such as these tax credits, and through innovative partnerships like the B.C. Regional Mining Alliance, we continue to create more certainty for the sector and reinforce British Columbia’s position as a world class mineral exploration and mining jurisdiction that is open for business. We appreciate the opportunity to convene our delegates and partners on Coast Salish territory, and thank our patron sponsor Teck for its continued support and initiative in driving collaboration and innovation.”
