PDAC Student-Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop [S-IMEW]
Geoscience students to gain the necessary tools for a career in the
mineral exploration industry
This May, twenty six geoscience students from across will Canada meet in Sudbury for the PDAC's ninth annual Student-Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop (S-IMEW), May 2-15.
Students will participate in an underground mine tour at Agnico Eagle's LaRonde gold mine, tour Glencore's Strathcona mill, and participate in mapping exercises and lake sediment sampling, a first for many of them. The multi-faceted nature of the workshop exposes students to all aspects of the industry with a mix of lectures, field exercises, site visits and networking with industry professionals to help them lay the foundation for a successful career in the mineral exploration industry.
David Harquail, President & CEO, Franco-Nevada, will kick off the workshop with an opening keynote presentation at the Welcome Reception at Dynamic Earth.
