Geoscience BC Welcomes Canadian Critical Minerals Strategy


VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 9, 2022 /CNW/ - Geoscience BC welcomes the launch of the Government of Canada's Canadian Critical Minerals Strategy in Vancouver. 

"Geoscience BC is excited to see a focus on public geoscience in The Canadian Critical Minerals Strategy" - Gavin C. Dirom, Geoscience BC President and CEO

Geoscience BC President and CEO Gavin C. Dirom said: "Geoscience BC is excited to see a focus on public geoscience in The Canadian Critical Minerals Strategy.

"Canada needs public geoscience and mineral exploration to find the critical minerals mines of the future. According to the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), every $1 invested in public geoscience attracts $7 in mineral exploration investment in Canada. Currently Geoscience BC is involved in projects that focus on critical metals such as copper, lithium and rare earth metals."

Indigenous reconciliation specialist, Geoscience BC Vice Chair and PDAC Director Lana Eagle added: "Working collaboratively as part of a coordinated approach to public geoscience is a hallmark of Geoscience BC's success. Public geoscience can be used by industry, communities, Indigenous groups, academia and others to identify and progress critical minerals opportunities in Canada."
