On this evening industry volunteers and sponsors who contribute to the success of S-IMEW celebrate with the students the completion of the two-week Workshop which will have exposed them to all facets of the mineral exploration industry.

The Workshop, going into it’s eighth year, gives students unique access to a high level of industry expertise on a wide range of topics that make for a well-rounded geoscientist. During S-IMEW students learn about regulatory requirements, mineral economics, flow-through shares, exploration and government mapping techniques, geophysics, geochemistry, health and safety and corporate social responsibility, smelter and mine operations and so much more.

S-IMEW was created in 2007 out of an essential need to encourage geoscience students to pursue a career in mineral exploration and improve the overall health of the industry by increasing interaction between students and industry professionals.  Read more…
