COVID-19 Action Forum

Engaging the Mineral Industry through Unprecedented Times

About the Forum:

We have created this Forum in response to the recent pandemic and to collect information and opinions on how this may affect the mineral exploration and resource extraction industry for projects or companies based in British Columbia.

Information will be monitored and may be used by a variety of groups to help define policy, action plans and support measures to help our industry, its employees and stakeholders.

Hive is hosting and operating this forum as a service to our industry, and as such we will be monitoring the forums and providing summaries of topics to interested parties.

Access and Participation

Anyone can read these forums, but to create content (including new topics) you will have to create a user account. This collects basic data but only your user name will appear in your posts. If you want to remain anonymous, we suggest selecting a ‘fake name’. However, if you are happy to be involved and possibly contacted for additional information then by all means use your real name.

Our system does collect email addresses through the sign up process but these are held privately and will not be used for marketing or other outreach purposes.

For any comments, questions or support, please email hello@sgds-hive.com.
