To Promote and Facilitate Economic Growth in the Natural Resource Sector for the Benefit of all British Columbians.
Mining Group (NIMG) was formed in 2008 by regional businesses to connect business and mining, with the goal of increasing the range of services/products to support and promote mine development in northern B.C.
Northern B.C. has long been dependent on the forestry and wood product manufacturing industry – an industry that has developed world class sawmills and pulp mills, but has also faced challenging markets. This need to diversify beyond the forest industry lead to the region and the businesses within to look to other viable options, and the most attainable was mining.
At the 2013 NIMG Annual General Meeting, NIMG’s mission was expanded to connect business and natural resource development projects in northern BC. We believe that through relationships and information sharing northern BC’s businesses have the human resource capacity, knowledge and abilities, to support all types of resource projects, such as mining, pipelines, forestry, and large scale energy projects.
We encourage regional businesses to get involved, network, and become part of the solution for the benefit of business, employment, and communities in northern BC.
