On June 22, 2019, the 7th Annual Mining Day will be happening again at Prince Arthur’s Landing in Marina Park located on Thunder Bay’s Waterfront. The event runs from 10 am to 4pm, rain or shine, and is free to all attendees. The festival will feature exhibitors, displays, speakers and activities all geared toward families and kids having fun while learning about the mining and exploration industries working in the Thunder Bay area as well as Northwestern Ontario. Exhibitors will represent all phases of the mining industry from service companies, geophysical contractors, drilling companies, assay labs, mining companies and educational groups. There will be interactive games and displays to educate children about the various stages of mining, as well as giveaways and prize draws! There will be a BBQ tent hosted by Women in Mining – Northwestern Ontario who will be serving smokies, hot dogs and hamburgers! All proceeds from the BBQ will be put towards the WIM scholarship that will be given next year to a student from Lakehead University, who is pursuing a career in the mining industry.
