May is BC Mining Month. Around the Province, communities will commemorate this vital industry and the people involved in it.
Mining is one of BC’s largest and oldest industries and BC Mining Month is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the importance of this modern, and ever-innovating industry to British Columbians.
Activities are planned around British Columbia to recognize the people and communities that participate in this foundational industry each and every day.
