Meet CSA Global at AME Roundup 2019 in Vancouver, Canada

Published on January 8th, 2019

CSA Global is looking forward to meeting you at the Association of Mineral Exploration (AME) Roundup between January 28-31, 2019 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, Vancouver, Canada.

This year’s theme, “ Elements for Discovery” will combine the elements necessary for successful mineral exploration. The event connects explorers, suppliers, financiers, innovators, Indigenous Peoples and groups and is underpinned by a world-renowned technical geoscience program. The synergies cultivated at Roundup energize the BC exploration community to discover and deliver the elements needed to support our shared future.

2019 marks AME’s 36th consecutive conference and while new ideas continue to flow, we can’t forget our renowned foundational programming in our Core Shack, Technical Sessions, and Student Poster session. Leading up to the conference we will be providing a full slate of short courses that will include Carlin Gold Deposits, Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Deposits and the Fundamentals of Mineral Resource Estimation.
