Upcoming Events

At YMP, we believe that exposing young people to the realities of mining is essential to promote a better understanding of the industry and fostering connections between mining professionals. On October 14 – 15, 2018, we successfully held our first annual mine tour at the Nickel Rim South Mine in Sudbury, Ontario. One of the tour participants, Vidia Panna, Communications Coordinator at IAMGOLD, wrote about her first time going down a mine. Here’s her experience.
