DCLP attends Geoscience Forum in Yellowknife

The 42nd Annual Yellowknife Geoscience Forum was held from November 25 to Thursday, November 27, 2014 in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The Yellowknife Geoscience Forum is the pre-eminent northern geoscience conference and trade show, promoting the immense and untapped resource potential of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The event provides a setting for the exchange of information on mineral and petroleum exploration, mining activities, and geoscience research in Canada’s north.

As always, the Department of Culture and Lands Protection (DCLP) had a display booth where staff explained to the world everything Tłı̨chǫ. There were also opportunities for presentations. Sjoerd van der Wielen, Lands Manager, held a presentation updating the public about the Community Based Marian Watershed Monitor Program, which was held in Shoti Lake and Gamètì this fall. Overall the Geoscience Forum was a success and the Tłı̨chǫ Government were well represented!
