CIMF also funds, on occasion, programs and activities that are deemed educational and/or promote the mining industry.

  • 2010 - The Diamonds Exhibition at the Discovery Center in Halifax

CIMF provided some support for the Maritimes presentation of ‘Diamonds’ during the summer 2010 period.   The Discovery Center in Halifax had anticipated 16,000 visitors and, instead, welcomed over 30,000 during the exhibition period!  This informative and educational show initiates the viewer to the world of mining diamonds by providing many hands-on opportunities from selecting raw materials to grading the diamond’s quality.  This exhibition, developed by Science North in Sudbury, will now travel across Canada and the United States over the next few years.
