CMEBC – Chamber of Mines Eastern BC

Rock Creek Fall Fair

The Chamber of Mines of Eastern BC hosted a table at the 2018 Rock Creek Fall Fair to perform outreach in order to educate the general public about the importance of exploration, mining and how mining affects our everyday lives.  They had specimens from the local region on display as well information posters and handouts. The public was encouraged to attend their table where they would engage in conversations regarding exploration and mining as well as the history of the area.  The public would ask questions regarding the specimens and CMEBC would further their knowledge of geology by performing demonstrations of mineral identification and answering questions.
