APGO Hosting Workshops in Conjunction with Thunder Bay Symposium
The Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario will present two workshops on April 7, 2014. These will be great professional development opportunities for APGO members.
On the morning of Monday April 7, 2014, the theme will be: ‘Regulations and Permitting for Early Stage Mineral Exploration Projects: What you need to know’. This workshop will include presentations from the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, Ministry of Natural Resources, Ministry of Labour, Ministry of Environment and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit, outlining current regulations and permit requirements affecting early stage mineral exploration projects. It will be a a practical workshop that will provide participants with an excellent overview of the current regulatory regime. Participants will receive a workbook containing presentation information, contacts, etc. While specifically targeted to professional geoscientists who are project geologists and managers, the workshop will also be open to others in the exploration community interested in operating field-based projects in a compliant manner.
Additionally, a tentative afternoon workshop providing current and updated information concerning the 43-101 report writing process is also being planned.
These workshops will be held at the Valhalla Motor Inn, Monday, April 7, 2014 and will be part of APGO’s Northwestern Ontario Regional Meeting which will also include a General Meeting and Reception for members on the same day. Further information and registration links will be available soon on the APGO and OPA websites.
