Welcome to Yellowknife.
The 12th International Kimberlite Conference will be coming to the Northwest Territories capital.
The last Conference was held just last month in Gaborone, Botswana.
The Government of the Northwest Territories, City of Yellowknife and NWT Tourism pulled together a bid package and won. The bid was also endorsed by the Northwest Territories’ diamond industry stakeholders.
Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment, Wally Schumann, says it’s exciting to be the hosts of such a major event.
“We look forward to welcoming the global diamond industry to this prestigious conference in our spectacular capital. This conference is not just about mining — it’s about sharing our region and all its potential with an international audience.”
The high profile international geological conference will be in YK in 2021.
