I remember a field trip to the Mining Museum when I was a kid. My Mother was one of the parent volunteers and had a big curly bubble hairdo. Funniest thing ever was to see her hard hat perched on top of her hair a la Marge Simpson while heading into the mine on the little train.
I’d love to learn more about the mining industry
Interesting events happening, looks like fun!
Looking to mine some gold with my new iPad!
Love the big trucks and mountain movers,watch them on the learning channel

I used to work in the exploration industry before becoming disabled. I have written for the mining industry now. The technology and scientific advancements are amazing. Love the Britannia Mine!

You’d be hard pushed to find a more iPad-deserving comment than this one. 🙂
Awesome. The women in mining event sounds interesting!

My Grandfather was a miner. His name was James Henry, and he worked in the Newdigate Colliery, in the UK for 30 yrs. I remember many happy hours with him telling stories about the pit ponies 🙂
Just thinking back to what it must have been like back in British Columbia’s old Gold Rush days. Wow!
I’ll have to check out the Vancouvet event. Please enter me for an IPod too.
I’ll have to check out the Vancouvet event. Please enter me for an IPad too.
Mining is such a critical part of BC’s economy. Thanks for the info you posted.
Teck recently donated $12.5 million to the Vancouver Aquarium! http://www.aquablog.ca/2012/04/vancouver-aquarium-receives-unprecedented-12-5-million-donation-from-teck-for-aquarium-expansion-and-water-program/

Having visited mine sites, I have even more appreciation for the miners than before.
Thanks for the opportunity to win the iPad, looking forward to attending Teck’s Annual Celebrity Pie Throw!
My wife told me the Brittania Mine tour is very good.
My grandfather worked at Brittania Mine back in the day…shocking what they go through.
Thanks for sharing! Would love to win an iPad too! 🙂
I’d recommend visiting the Britannia Mine – it’s great for all ages.
Thanks for the history lesson on this great province :>) looking forward to sending many people there this summer
There are great opportunities in the Mining Industry. And WOW, GO YOU WOMEN IN MINING!
thx for the info and the giveaway
Great… thx for the giveaway
I know someone’s mommy who would love a brand new ipad. I also went to http://www.iheartmining.ca and learned a bit about BC’s mining industry. Very neat!
I want to win for once!
It would make a nice birthday present to myself;)
Would love an iPad 3, still don’t have one yet
Great job on supporting this, miss 604!
Looks very interesting
Cool event. Even cooler contest!
I’m mining for an ipad3. PLease enter me into your most excellent contest. Cheers!
Nice promotion. A good way to get people info on the mining industry.
I’d love to win!
Would love to win!
Can’t build an iPad without the mining industry! Or… Anything else!
Great contest. Safety in mining is extremely important!
Great events for anyone wanting to learning more about mining.
Sweet,mining week sounds cool
I’d like to win an iPad and see what the fuss is all about. The Starfleet officers on the Enterprise used it and I didn’t see they all excited about their PADDs.
It’s REALLY cool that they are addressing Women in Mining! (High 5 to the ladies!) It’s not an industry that people typically think of as one women would gravitate towards, so it’s great to see that boundry being broken down! I’d LOVE to know what types of job women are performing.
Recently, I’ve been enjoying that new show Bearing Sea Gold, which is about mining in Alaska. It’s really interesting!
I always learn something by reading this blog! 🙂
I love the museum in Hedley and it would be great to win an ipad.
After having worked at Hunter Dickinson Inc. with the engineering team as a high school student in their work experience program, I’ve come to understand and appreciate the mining industry so much more. And I definitely would not eliminate it from my future career options 🙂
Ipad3 would b great!
I sure would love an iPad!
I used to work at the mine in Princeton. Great summer job…put me through university.
Mining for an ipad 3
Would love to win one!
Looks like some fun events!
Thank you for this wonderful blog! It really is nice to see Miss604 covering such a important and valuable topic. I work in the mining field, and let me tell you… it’s far more interesting than any other field I’ve ever worked in! I work in the head office of a very reputable mining contractor based in Burnaby BC called Procon Mining & Tunnelling. Procon is full of amazing talent and loyal employees who truly value great work ethic and hold their values high amongst the best. The knowledge and years behind the majority of the staff, make working for them so fantastic and rewarding. I get to work the front lines, and deal with everything from clients, and most importantly the miners!! They deserve to be treated well, as the work that they do is so difficult and and mostly, a hard lifestyle to be away from family and friends for extended period of time.
BC Mining week is extremely important as the industry is booming, and the manpower is at an all time low. It is a struggle to find skilled workers, and I truly hope that this new generation really thinks about the worth of this industry and its importance to our economy.
Thank you again Miss604 for posting this blog. You did a remarkable job, and hope this really does help spread the awareness to this crucial industry for our economic growth.
An iPad would be SO useful.. Fingers crossed for this one!!
Would love an ipad! Woohoo for mining week! 🙂
This would be such an awesome prize!
I love the old bumper sticker slogan, “If it can’t be grown, it’s gotta be mined.”
Sign me up 🙂
BC has a cool mining history.
Sign me up for the pie toss. And the iPad 😀
What a great contest! I would love to win an ipad 😀
Such a nice prize!
Great prize for a contest.
would love to learn more about this industry
Thanks for promoting such an interesting week of events!
Would love to win an iPad! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
Been through Britannia mine both before and after the restorations. A very, very cool way for the fasmily to enjoy an entire day!
Great! Mining week is back and reminds me of the time I was a volunteer for CIM Conference. Hope I get the IPad 😉
I love rocks and minerals. Hope I can attend one of the conferences.
Awesome post! And of course super IPad giveaway! Thanks
I haven`t been to Britannia Museum yet. That would be a very good excuse. Win an iPad one month away from my bday would also be sweet!
I heart mining!
I need a Ipad.
Would love to win one for free!
OMG, that would be amazing.
I heart @Miss604 too.
This is one event I’ve not heard of yet. Thanks for the post!
Mining week is awesome. I attended the mining conference back in May 2010 at Convention Centre. Such a good memory
Toured the Britania Mine up towards Squamish when I was about 6. Toured the Sudbury Nickel Mine when I was about 10. Always fascinated with mining. Wonder what cool mining apps there are for the iPad 3?
Great contest giveaway. Thanks!
The mining museum is awesome!
Had my students participate in “Mining Week” one year. Have been in the Britannia Mine when it was a working mine.

Mining week, eh? Sounds like an under appreciated industry…
You can’t have an ipad without minerals…and I can’t have one unless I win it!
I need an iPad to go back to school this year! Winning one would be great.
I’ve never been to the Brittania Mine Museum… I should really go. Great giveaway btw!
My wife would love to take that two story truck for a spin…. I’m just worried she’d take it shopping :-). Happy mining week!
Definitely recommend the Hedley Mascot Mines tour if you’re ever in the area. Very interesting bit of local history!

The miners all deserve ipads for all the hard work they do.
When ever my girls and I are stuck on what to do, I check your site! You always keep us in the know for local activities. Tnx!!
Great giveaway thank you
Mining is a very tough job! My grandfather was a gold/silver miner in Haileybury, Ontario. My oldest brother mined Uranium in Eliot Lake, Ontario; long enough (maybe 2 years) to buy a brand new Corvette, in cash.
I still have samples from both of my family’s mining days. The Uranium is only slightly radioactive (about 80 CPM).
Thank you so much for this great tour information. I will definitely check out some of these events (and look into the tours).
The chance at a iPAD 3 is super… I was just laid off… so I would use the iPAD to start iDevice apps programming (objective c is interesting :-)).
My Kids Love collecting Rock’s that would be so cool to have them identified 🙂
Thanks for the contest!
I’d love to win this ipad3, if i do its gonna go to my mom for mothers day! ^^
This would be awesome! Thanks.
I’m looking forward to the event in Kamloops. Thanks!
I learned about Mining Week! Love this giveaway!
That’s great idea to promote mining in BC and I especially like that there is also an event to focus on women in mining.
Went to the Britannia Mining Museum and was tons of fun! Great to see events like this bring awareness to the industry!
Great giveaways Miss 604!!!
Great contest and so wonderful to bring attention to all the hard work the miners in BC do!
haven’t been there since I was a child but I hope to go back one day.
We look forward to hosting BC mining week. I’d like an ipad 🙂
Is there nothing at Britannia Mines? Maybe I’ll go to Hedley. Love the opportunity to win the Ipad though :-).
Had no idea there was a week dedicated to Mining! Seems pretty cool, and heck a chance to win an iPad is awesome!
I’d take pictures of the museum with my new iPad 3.
I’d never really given BC’s mining history a lot of thought until I moved to Nanaimo and now, it’s kind of everywhere. Lotta coal coming out of Nanaimo. May not have much of a chance to actually win this one, but any chance is a good chance, eh? Hope you & J are well. xocc
Even though the film and tech industries get all the press, mining is still king out here in BC.
It’s great to see some celebration of primary resources – hopefully it can develop into higher safety and inspection standards for primary sites in BC. Protect the workers!
Awesome to see an event honoring women in the field, or in this case mine!
Mining history is so interesting. Loved it as a kid. Cool contest.
Mining Week is a great idea! Any awareness raised for the workers and families of those who work in dangerous jobs to mine the minerals that keep our economy going is a good cause. Congrats on the event, hope it goes well.
I would love an ipad!
Respect for the miners, that is for sure!
I’d love to finally get an iPad. 🙂
Wow! It would be fabulous to win an Ipad3. Thanks to BC Mining for such a great contest.
I would love an iPad!
Interesting to see miners pushing for visibility in BC.
All the best to the miners. Would be great to win the ipad. Thanks for this.
Ohh I want one!!!!!
Mines and miners contribute a lot to the BC economy, so thanks to all of them. iPad 3 would be SO cool for my kids (okay, and me too!)
Great contest to promote mining week.
One great day-trip thing to do is to visit Britannia Mine 🙂
Thank you for running this promotion & for promoting Mining Week. Great work opportunities in BC – unlike the rest of Canada.

I’d give the ipad to my mom for mother’s day!
Excellent! Go mining week! Hello there ipad!
I think Mining week is a great idea. Residents of BC need to learn more about natural resource industry as a whole.

Brittania mine is cool,
Any time I think of mining in B.C. I think of my elementary school field trips to Britannia Mines where we learned how to pan for gold.
This link made me have a look at other sites about mining in BC. Very interesting.
It’s great to see you in the community! Looking forward to some of the events that will be taking place!!
Glad to see you’re working with these folks again!
I think it would be so much fun to watch the celebrity pie throw at the art gallery!
Been to the mining week last year and it was great and very interesting and a great trip with my son. Would love to win this package, he’s been wishing and requesting for an ipad for the last year. Would love to be able to present this to him! Pick me, Pick me!

awesome! thanks for the chance.
Great events going on for mining week!
The pie throw for mining for miracles is a great event 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
what an awesome giveaway! =D
BC Mining Week highlights what a great contribution the BC Mining Industry makes to our Province both in terms of providing jobs to remote areas and supporting charities. As someone who works in the mining industry an ipad 3 of my very own would mean I could give back my work one and have one all of my very own – lol!
Great information and prize again!
would love to take the family to britannia mine museum for the day ….
with my new iPad!
I’ve done some environmental work in the mining sector.
What a great event to bring to everyone’s attention!
I’ve never been to the Mining Museum and I’ve really been meaning to go. Perhaps this summer.
The Britannia Mine Museum is a wonderful place to visit. We enjoyed our time there and got some cool pics too.
Yay! Mining is cool, and winning stuff is even cooler!
I’d say it’s about time to finally get into the new millenium and a new IPad would help
would definitely like to take my kids to visit The Britannia Mine Museum during the summer break
I went to the Britannia Mine Museum a while back and would love to go again
would love love to win this!!! =D
Ipads make the world go round.
great contest, I’ve always wanted to visit that museum.
Happy Mining Week to everyone in this industry!
Going to the Britannia museum this weekend!
What an awesome prize!
Goin down in the ground
iPad? Yeah, I could use one of those.
What a very important part of history and the future.
Ohhhh boy… this would be a DREAM PRIZE!
nice to see the industry in a positive light for a change
Mining is one of BC’s largest and oldest industries!
I live in Nanaimo and we have lots of mining history here!! #miningweek
Another great contest. Hoping for a win for once!
Loved the Britannia Mining Museum tour, we went in March. Tour was led by a great fellow who used to work in the active mine.
Ironically enough, I just transferred into the Mining division at my company! Would be fabulous to win an iPad to commemorate the occasion 🙂
ipad 3 would be the PERFECT birthday gift!!! Great contest, great museum!
Love me an ipad…
yea mining yea iPad3
I actually have photos, from when my father would go to these sites, as he was a regional manager at the time for General Tire Company.. and one time he took my younger brother and the picture of a little fellow beside one of those huge mining trucks was crazy!
Would love to win an iPad to give to my Mum for mother’s day!
I’ve always wanted an iPad3! 🙂 and I have always wanted to do the Britannia Tour, is that part of the prize too???
I believe in Mining.
Which is why I think this iPad should be Mine.
Would love to check out some of these Mining Week events!
I pad 3 would truly be an amazing win * fingers crossed*
Wow, I’ve heard a bit of BC Mining in the past year. So glad that more light is shed on the industry.
Amazing giveaway again, Rebecca!
Nothing but respect for the men and women who risk their lives to provide us the materials for an inhanced quality of living.
iPad? yesPlease! Mining ROCKS!
Wow, an iPad! Super!
Help me enter the modern age! I am Ipad-less. And I love rocks. That’s like mining, right?
I’d like to find out more about mining.
I like this contest. Mining is an important part of BC’s history.
Makes sense, as many of the iPad’s components are based on mining products
pie throw would be a fun experience
Always interesting to hear what is up in the mining industry. I’ll be sure to “mine” for information on my new ipad if i win it.
I feel we take mining for granted here in Vancouver. It contributes a lot to our provincial economy.
These events should be cool to check out.
Mining is such a huge driver of BC and Canada’s economy. Really happy to see it get the visibility and recognition in many communities with this event. Hope it continues.
Also look forward to throwing pies in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery on Mat 17th!
Never knew about mining week. cool giveaway, wanna own an ipad.
Never knew about mining week! Cool!
happy mining week!
Would love to win this Rebecca!
Ipad 3 would be amazing!
Minning is good for the BC economy!!!
my mom has an ipad… i need one to keep up with her!
Interesting post! We visited Britannia a few years ago and it was very interesting. 🙂
Minning for iPad 3!
Congrats Danika! Enjoy!
