Thetford Mines Branch

About Us

CIM Thetford Mines is one of the original CIM Branches.

With the gradual closing of mines in our region, our branch’s mission primarily became informing our members of mining development in our region with mineral technology students in mind. We are approximately 100 members strong plus college students.

Five scholarships are awarded every year, three for graduates from secondary school ($100 each), one for a student of the local technical mining school ($475) and one is awarded to a university student ($900). The scholarship program has been around since the first university scholarship was awarded in 1980. Students are invited to attend all branch meetings and events.

I am a student, and it was really important for me to have a chance to chat with the big names in the industry. CIM, especially the Montreal Branch, has helped a lot with networking activities such as dinner conferences.
