CIM Toronto 2009
Abstract This presentation will highlight how Mining Matters participated in the 2008 First Nations Natural Resources Youth Employment Program (FNNRYEP), held in partnership with Outland Forestry and Confederation College. The seven-week live-in professional and personal development program is designed to facilitate future employment in the natural resource sector. Twenty-six youth, aged 15 to 19, traveled from 15 northern Ontario aboriginal communities to participate. Mining Matters provided five days of thematic educational programming that included geosciences, environmental science, careers education and mining, as well as a visit to North American Palladium’s Lac Des Iles mine operation.
