The NWT & Nunavut Chamber of Mines has been awarded the NAPEG Professional Award of Merit in Geoscience by the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists (NAPEG). The award was presented on March 14 for the Chamber’s dedication to, and support of, the North’s mineral resources industry (which includes the work of many geoscientists and engineers practising within the industry).
Established in 1967, the Chamber is a non-profit association which provides leadership on, and advocates for, responsible and sustainable mineral exploration and development in the NWT and Nunavut. It does this work through small offices in Yellowknife, NT and Iqaluit, NU. Work over its long history has been made possible by the contributions of its numerous members, and particularly its member geoscientists and engineers.
