Technically driven, they come together to discuss issues of concern in their specific field pertaining to the discovery, production and utilization of resources.

As part of their mission, CIM technical societies arrange for specialized conferences, courses and publications; bestow scholarships and awards; as well as maintain channels of communication with government departments and academic institutions.
