2014 - PDAC Caracle Cup Hockey Tournament: ZIMTU CAPITALS
The seventh annual PDAC-Caracle Cup Hockey Tournament took place on Saturday, March 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Buckingham Arena located at Downsview Park. Teams and individuals from all facets of the minerals industry will play on NHL- and Olympic-size ice sheets in a modified round-robin, competing for top spots in the final consolation and championship games. The winning team and its players’ names will be forever enshrined on the prestigious Caracle Cup, generously donated by Caracle Creek International Consulting (CCIC). The 2014 tournament had 250 entries with players from across the country.

Besides being an industry favourite for networking and friendly competition on the ice, the tournament has become an important annual fundraising event to support Mining Matters’ education efforts. The 2014 tournament raised over $25,000 in much needed support. Mining Matters is a charitable organization dedicated to bringing the wonder of Canada’s geology and mineral resources to students, educators and members of the general public. The organization provides current information about rocks, minerals, metals, and mining and builds awareness of employment opportunities in the mineral exploration, mining, and environmental sectors.
