Members

Membership in IMII is open to all those that are interested in advancing the minerals industry and is, as required by the non-profit corporations’ act, approved by the Board of Directors.  Members of IMII are organizations (e.g. companies, institutions, government bodies) not individuals. The member organizations choose a person to represent their organization in IMII.  Those designated individuals are expected to attend each meeting of the Board and/or committee to which they may have been appointed.

Minerals Companies: Includes those companies involved in the Saskatchewan minerals industry in exploration, development, extraction/production or closure/reclamation, and share a commitment to innovation through IMII.  Company fees are assessed per the following categories:

  • "Company B" Category – those with annual international revenues between $20 million to $100 million US and contributing $25,000, and
  • "Company C" Category – those with annual international revenues less than $20 million US and contributing $5,000 per year.

Companies in category A automatically gain a seat on the Board of Directors, while companies in categories B and C are provided one seat each on the Board and are to elect a representative from their peers.  Membership fees are paid in annual instalments, although commitments are obtained for multi-year terms.  The Saskatchewan Mining Association (SMA), because of its broad representation of the province's mining industry, is provided a seat on the board.

Supply Chain Companies:  Those companies who are not minerals producers but are involved in the mineral industry’s innovation ecosystem through the provision of goods and service, including original equipment manufacturers, engineering firms, construction companies, consultancies, other service companies.  Company fees are assessed per the following categories:

  • "Company C" Category – small supply chain companies with annual international revenues less than $1 million US and contributing $2,500 per year.

Supply chain companies are provided one seat on the Board and are to elect a representative from their peers.
