Northern Ontario Mining Awards Night

A recognition to individuals and companies for their contributions to the mining industry. Kick off the Expo with the Gala Dinner. Join us for an evening of Networking and fun with the leaders and dignitaries representing Northern Ontario’s mining and exploration industries.



The Show with Bobby Motta

An Absolute mind-bending experience which Bobby has developed using original material and some of the strongest effects known to the world of mentalism performed by its creator. The show is 45-55 minutes of mind reading packed with audience participation and clean witty humour for the intellect. The guests will be amazed, baffled and fully engaged with their jaws to the floor. Not a dull moment with a finale that has left even the biggest skeptics scratching their heads!!!!

Watch a 7-minute video of Bobby Motta on the Steve Harvey show 


Tables of 8 or single seats will be available; the Gala Dinner is a great way to start the Expo and has always been a sold-out event.


The Gala Dinner is hosted by the Porcupine Branch of the CIM and is used as a fundraiser for their mining scholarship program. This year the Official Bursary Sponsor is the Day Group of Companies.

Since its inception, the Gala Dinner has raised over 160k for local non-profit groups.
