“PDAC Mining Matters programs provide students with information on the importance of mining in society, education on local geology and career opportunities in the mining industry. The results of Mining Matters to date are very encouraging…..little kids coming home after school showing little bits of rock to their mum and dad and being able to identify what type of rock it is, in Inuktitut and English, and saying that they want to be a geologist when they grow up. The PDAC Mining Matters helps to create that spark of interest. This is important to Agnico Eagle as the PDAC Mining Matters program helps to sets the stage to ensure a more interested, capable and educated labor force.”
