About Us

The 49th annual Saskatchewan Geological Open House will be held at the Delta Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon from Monday, December 3rd to Wednesday, December 5th, 2018.

The conference is co-hosted by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey, Ministry of the Economy, Government of Saskatchewan, and the independent, non-profit Saskatchewan Geological Society.  The event fulfills the mandates of both groups by profiling high quality geoscience in support of Saskatchewan’s mineral industry while promoting earth sciences in the public at large.

The Open House continues to be the premier annual meeting venue for mining and mineral exploration companies active in Saskatchewan with over 700 local, national, and international delegates attending annually.

This year’s Open House features a strong technical program that begins the morning of Tuesday, December 4th through to the afternoon on Wednesday, December 5th.  The program will profile the geoscience endeavors of the Saskatchewan Geological Survey and feature a number of talks from academia and industry that highlight various Saskatchewan exploration and development projects as well as advances in exploration techniques.  An IceBreaker event, trade show, poster session, and short course round out the event.

Commercial exhibits will be located within the Conference Foyer, Terrace Lounge, and the Adam Ballroom of the main Convention floor and in the William Pascoe Room on the Mezzanine floor.  Technical posters and technical talks are on the Mezzanine Floor within the William Pascoe Room and Battleford Room respectively.  Exhibition space is limited, so book now!

We appreciate the participation of all our delegates, exhibitors, and conference sponsors.  It is thanks to the support of our exhibitors and sponsors that we are able to once again offer free registration to all conference delegates.

Sincerely,
Saskatchewan Geological Open House Organizing Committee
