The Mining Society of Nova Scotia holds the annual event of the province, bringing together professionals from throughout Nova Scotia each June.

Last year, the MSNS Annual General Meeting was June 1 and 2, at the Dundee Resorts, in Dundee, Cape Breton. An exciting technical program featured a varied lineup including the ever-growing gold industry in Nova Scotia, the resurgence of coal in Nova Scotia, mining projects, and related subjects. The conference theme, Cleaning up the Past; Preparing for the Future, was the focus of an excellent slate of presentations by professionals.

Other highlights of the event include social activities and an awards banquet. The success of the MSNS annual meeting is in no small part due to the continued generous support of sponsors.
