30 Mineral Exploration | amebc.ca relevant topics impacting the mineral exploration industry. This year will feature the theme "Modernizing the Free-Entry System," bringing together diverse subject- matter experts to share their understanding of this topic. The facilitated conversations will allow for different perspectives and lead to suggestions on how to keep the conversation moving forward. Short Courses Register early for Short Courses; these are often sold out well in advance of the conference. Marketing and Communications in the Mining World Friday, January 20 The rapid spread of information on social media platforms, the growth of viewership of digital content and the increasing public involvement in the mining industry mean that mineral exploration and development companies must understand how to properly market themselves and communicate in order to succeed. This half-day course will get you up to speed on how to market yourself to investors, the public and the business community, as well as provide tips and tools for how to respond in a crisis situation. Mining Company Disclosure 101 Friday, January 20 Learn the fundamentals of good mining company disclosure. This full-day course is designed to help geologists and engineers prepare and approve technical disclosure, and understand the principles of timely disclosure that underlie it. Presented by geologists from the B.C. Securities Commission, the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada, this course offers valuable information that you can apply immediately. Geophysics for Geologists Saturday, January 21 – Sunday, January 22 Presented by: BC Geophysical Society This two-day course can be taken in full or in separate half-day components. The first three components will cover the three principal geophysical methods used in mineral exploration, each covering basic principles from geologic, survey-design and quality-control perspectives, followed by case study applications. The final component will cover advanced interpretation methods – inversion and earth modelling – with additional interpretation case studies. Day 1 (AM) – Induced Polarization and Resistivity Day 1 (PM) – Gravity, Magnetics and Radiometrics Day 2 (AM) – Electromagnetics and Magnetotellurics Day 2 (PM) – Advanced Interpretation Methods: Inversion and Earth Modelling Gold Deposit Models, Targeting & Exploration Saturday, January 21 – Sunday, January 22 Presented by: Mineral Deposit Research Unit, UBC This two-day course will provide you with an overview of fundamental and new concepts in gold deposit geology, models, targeting and exploration methods. The material covered will contribute to your improved exploration decision-making from ground acquisition to discovery. Participants will be exposed to new and critical criteria in model definition. Targeting criteria and techniques will range from crustal-scale to prospect-scale utilizing a range of innovative and tried-and-true techniques, including presentations from the Integra Gold Rush Challenge.
