Saskatchewan Mining Week Promotes Innovation, Adaptation

Released on May 29, 2017

The impact and contributions of the province’s mining industry will be the focus of Saskatchewan Mining Week, which was officially proclaimed today at the Legislature Building in Regina.

Organized by the Saskatchewan Mining Association (SMA) to promote awareness of the people and activities that comprise the industry, the overall theme of this year’s week is “Mining in Transformational Times”.

“This year’s theme speaks to the resiliency and innovative spirit that defines the qualities of Saskatchewan’s dynamic mining sector,” Energy and Resources Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “Part of our job in government is to do our best to enable businesses to invest in our province, helping to create sustainable jobs and grow our economy.

“SMA member companies have made multibillion dollar investments in Saskatchewan over the past decade,” Saskatchewan Mining Association Chair Jessica Theriault said.  “And because of these investments, mining remains a key pillar of Saskatchewan’s economy in these transformational times.”

Saskatchewan is the largest potash producer in the world, possessing almost half of the world’s potash reserves, and is the world’s second largest primary uranium producer, with a catalogue of other minerals such as gold, base metals, clays, coal and diamonds.

Saskatchewan ended 2016 with a total value of all mineral sales of $6.4 billion, and led all provinces in mining capital expenditures, according to Natural Resources Canada.  Among the events scheduled during Mining Week will be the 49th Annual Emergency Response/Mine Rescue Skills Competition to be held at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon on Saturday, June 3.
