Our Earth's Riches

CIM and Science North are working together to develop a travelling Pan Canadian Mining Exhibit that will be placed for extended stays in various science centres and museums across Canada. The exhibit will be developed, built and managed by Science North with technical support from CIM. The project will be primarily funded by CIM constituents and other mining groups, with significant funding from Science North as well.

The exhibit will help promote mineral literacy through an interactive visitor’s experience aimed to be both educational as well as engaging.
