The conference will kick off on Monday, October 15th with a pre-conference field tour of the largest mine reclamation project in New Brunswick. Glencore Canada Corporation has agreed to host our field tour and will highlight almost 10 years of highly successful remediation work. The Brunswick mine produced 137 million tonnes of ore and extracted 29 million tonnes of zinc, lead, copper and bulk concentrates. The free field tour will commence from the NBCC campus at 11:00 a.m. Monday.
