Flash mentoring is a one-time meeting and discussion with industry mentors. This is an opportunity to expand your network and connect with industry professionals. This event is open to 3rd and 4th year undergraduates, final year college students, graduate students and students who have graduated within the last two years. Registration will open in January.
Next Generation Explorers Award (NGEA™)
The 2021 finalists of this international geoscience student competition will present their submissions on transforming modern, pre-competitive global datasets into their interpretation of the subsurface geology and mineralisation targets.
They will be judged by a panel of mining industry leaders and professionals based on innovation, data integration, exploration significance, team collaboration and diversity. The NGEA™ was founded in honour of Frank Arnott (1951-2009), an exceptional exploration industry leader who championed innovative techniques that maximised the value of multidisciplinary data underpinning mineral exploration campaigns worldwide.
The SMC brings together geoscience students and industry professionals at PDAC, which is the world's largest minerals and mining industry conference.
For the first time in its history, the Colloquium will be held virtually, featuring 100 poster presentations highlighting current research on mineral deposits and related studies by students from around the world.
Students who would like to present a poster at the event and participate in the virtual competition must register. The call for abstracts closes on January 22, 2021 at midnight EST. Visit https://merc.laurentian.ca/seg-smc-register for details.
