One of the highlights of Mining Week in Timmins will be the virtual event to be held 2-3 June on your own computer.

The team at Canadian Tradex has developed what it calls the Virtex virtual trade show platform.  It makes its debut June 2nd and 3rd during Mining Week.  The theme is “Mining the Abitibi Greenstone Belt”. Virtex moves most of the features of the mining expo into the online realm.  It features a mining conference; procurement exhibition; and a job fair. Plus it has “The Prospector” – an online scavenger hunt for schools.

The goal is to connect mines, suppliers, schools, job seekers, human resource staff and the public in a safe and engaging way with the safety of social distancing.
