44th Annual Yellowknife Geoscience Forum

The 44th Annual Yellowknife Geoscience Forum was held from November 15 to November 17, 2016 in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The Yellowknife Geoscience Forum is the pre-eminent northern geoscience conference and trade show, promoting the immense and untapped resource potential of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The event provides a setting for the exchange of information on mineral and petroleum exploration, mining activities, and geoscience research in Canada’s north.

As always, the Department of Culture and Lands Protection (DCLP) had a display booth where staff explained to the world everything Tłįchǫ. There were also opportunities for presentations. Michael Birlea held a presentation updating the public about the Community Based Marian Watershed Monitor Program, which was held on Marian River this past fall. Overall the Geoscience Forum was a success and the Tłįchǫ Government was well represented!
