2019 Atlantic Canada Regional Mineral Processors Conference - Halifax

Oct 16, 2019 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Lot Six Bar & Restaurant

We hope to see you in Halifax on October 16th, 2019 for our inaugural Atlantic Canadian Mineral Processors (CMP) conference. This will be an opportunity for the industry to come together, learn and exchange on topics that are near and dear to mineral processors.

CMP is a division of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM). Given the recent heightened interest in gold in Nova Scotia, the timing was right to re-establish the CMP’s presence in the Atlantic region.

We are planning a full day of activities, including a half-day session of technical presentations, a guest speaker, a Keynote presentation, and dinner at Halifax’s Lot Six Bar & Restaurant (www.lotsix.ca).

We invite you to attend our Atlantic Canada Region CMP conference and to consider presenting at our event.

Attending the Event

The Lot Six Bar & Restaurant venue can accommodate up to 80 people. To avoid being disappointed, we invite you to sign up early, but no later than October 1st, 2019 to avoid the late registration rates. You may check registration rates and/or register via Eventbrite. Registration rates include dinner and drinks for one.
