The Student Minerals Colloquium (SMC) brings together geoscience students and industry professionals to highlight innovative student research on projects essential for the successful evolution of the modern mining industry. This event provides industry professionals with an opportunity to support and stay current with ongoing international research from students across the world.

All students (BSc, MSc, PhD) working on projects linked to mineral deposits (e.g. mapping, mineralogy, geochemistry, geophysics, environmental, hydrogeology, etc.) will have the option to share their research with an audience of academics, students, and industry professionals either in person or online.

A panel of academics and industry professionals will judge posters. Winners in multiple categories will earn prestige and cash prizes, thanks to our sponsors.
