Another successful four-day event came to a close as the Association for Mineral Exploration Roundup Conference ended its 37th annual meeting on January 23. As one of the world’s top exploration-related events, Roundup attracted miners, suppliers, executives, experts, explorers and community representatives for a variety of programs that emphasized innovation and engagement.

This year’s theme, Lens on Discovery, brought to light new tools and techniques to uncover the deposits of tomorrow. Over 300 companies shared the Exhibit Hall with popular Roundup attractions like the Innovation Stage and Hub, Project Generators’ Hub, Core Shack and Prospectors’ Tent.

Gathering Place continued an AME tradition of encouraging dialogue between industry and natives. Among this year’s noteworthy presentations, Tahltan – A History related the band’s “exploration and mining history, trials and tribulations encountered along the way and how they have come to be leaders in the industry.”

The annual Awards Gala feted winners in 11 categories, showing the wide range of achievement necessary to supply the world with commodities luxurious, useful or essential. As AME chairperson Rob McLeod noted, “From exploration to finance, safety to sustainability, our members continue to make positive contributions to mineral exploration and mine development around the world.”

Roundup returns from January 18 to 21, 2021.
