Yellowknife Geoscience Forum 2022


The organizing committee is happy to welcome you to our new event website!

The Annual Yellowknife Geoscience Forum is the largest mining and petroleum conference in the Northwest Territories. The joint initiative of the NWT & Nunavut Chamber of Mines and the Government of the NWT's Department of Industry, Tourism, and Investment attracts hundreds of delegates and exhibitors who want to share their knowledge, learn from others, and promote their services, and products. The event is held annually in Yellowknife, the capital city of the Northwest Territories, in mid-to-late November.

Exhibitors - We are working to get online registration for the trade show finalized.

If your company exhibited in 2019, you will be granted right of first refusal. Your corporate membership must be in good standing. To confirm membership, please contact Cheryl Wourms. Once corporate membership has been paid (and the registration is available), you will be sent details for registration.

Companies that did not exhibit in 2019, please contact Cheryl Wourms to request a booth. Please note your company must be a corporate member in order to exhibit. We anticipate we will be able to accommodate all new exhibitors this year. In order to expedite the process more quickly, please fill out the application form, and send it to the membership office. Once membership is paid, you will be sent details on the registration process.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
