Industry professionals interested in displaying core and results from mineral exploration and development projects are invited to present at the Core Shack: 2020 Virtual AMA Convention.
The Core Shack provides a showcase for participants of projects that are generating meaningful new results or have not participated in AMA's core shack before, to show off their core, and discuss results with interested attendees. In addition, reactivated mines, extensions, or satellite to existing operations are encouraged participants, particularly where new results are generating interest in future development potential of the project. Hand samples, maps, charts, and other technical information are also welcome.
Since this event is relatively new for AMA, participation is heavily incentivized through the offer of complimentary exhibit space and complimentary conference registration for the lead exhibitor. Please support your Alaska Miners Association by participating in and helping us grow the Core Shack.
If you are interested in presenting at the Core Shack please provide contact names, affiliation, contact information, and the name of the deposit prospect to Varina Zinno (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Traci Hartz (email@example.com) by October 10, 2019, although earlier submittals are encouraged and will facilitate planning.

The exhibit will be on the trade show floor in the Dena'ina Center.
The “Prospectors’ Tent”, an exciting recent addition to the Fall conference as of 2018, will feature independent prospectors or early-exploration projects displaying their mineral prospects and discoveries. With participation and support, this exhibit should blossom into another highlighted attraction that draws attendees to the conference to see early-stage properties with potential while further promoting interest and investment in exploration across Alaska. Providing a venue for prospectors to share their discoveries is an important opportunity that may lead to new discoveries, prospects, and partnerships in Alaska, as several notable discovery stories in Canada attest to. The “Prospectors’ Tent” exhibit will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 5 and 6, in the Trade Show.
The Prospectors’ Tent will provide an opportunity for independent prospectors or early-exploration projects to display their mineral prospects and discoveries. This will be a space to feature displays, maps, or photographs, rock samples, and drill core, and give conference attendees a chance to see early-stage properties with potential throughout Alaska.
The Prospectors’ Tent is a recent addition to the Fall AK Miners Conference with the possibility to blossom, with sufficient participation, into another highlighted attraction that draws attendees to the conference and further promoting interest in Alaska exploration. Please help spread the word.
If you are interested in presenting at the Prospectors Tent please provide contact names, affiliation, contact information to Varina Zinno (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Traci Hartz (email@example.com), although earlier submittals are encouraged and will facilitate planning.
