AME Regional Funding at Work

AME Regional Funding at Work

Every year, AME provides funding to support regional public outreach across the province. Public outreach and education are done by the regional exploration group representatives and volunteers and aim to reach a variety of audiences from business groups to school children. The events and projects are planned to engage audiences outside of the industry in order to raise awareness of the value of mineral exploration and mining.

Thank you to these groups for their work promoting the mineral exploration industry and for supporting AME’s Strategic Plan and Priorities; Successful Exploration, Public Awareness and Stakeholder Awareness, Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, Member Benefits and Services and Roundup 2019.

This year, the following groups were awarded funding for their projects and initiatives:
