PDAC developed the Student‑Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop (S‑IMEW) in 2007 as a unique event designed to attract students to the mineral exploration industry and to give them a practical and business perspective of mineral exploration not generally available in the classroom.

To date, 362 students, including 143 women, have participated in S‑IMEW since its inception. The idea behind S‑IMEW was direct and ambitious: to promote a strong and vibrant mineral exploration industry, led by the students who will ultimately become its future.

PDAC thanks all of the outstanding volunteers and sponsors who have allowed S‑IMEW and its participants to succeed over the past decade.

Industry support is vital to the continued success of this important experiential workshop.With your support and contribution, we can continue to develop the future leaders of the mineral exploration and development industry. Consider one of our sponsorship opportunities to profile your company at S‑IMEW.

2023 Sponsorship Package will be available shortly.
