June 27-28, 2017
University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario
This year we present the opportunity for the mining and aggregate sectors to come together to compare rehabilitation techniques and innovations and help expand our knowledge and networking base.
SYMPOSIUM (Tuesday June 27)
The Symposium will showcase one day of technical presentations and posters, in addition to reclamation and student award presentations. As the birthplace of the CLRA in 1975, with excellent examples of rehabilitation close to campus, the University of Guelph is the ideal location for the 2017 Symposium.
FIELD TRIP (Wednesday June 28)
Local field trips will highlight successes in research and rehabilitation in the mining and aggregate sectors.
In an effort to keep costs low, the organizing committee is also seeking sponsorships. Your logo will be prominently displayed and your company fully acknowledged at the event. Please call our Treasurer Peter White to discuss sponsorship opportunities including sponsorship of events (1-416-236-8208).
