Grade 11 and 12 students are invited to join us on Monday January 20 at AME's Mineral Exploration Roundup conference held at the Vancouver Convention Centre East (Pan Pacific) to explore the breadth of careers within the mining industry. This program is sponsored by Teck. Registration deadline: Tuesday January 14.
MineralsEd partner-teacher Bruce Kiloh facilitates this program. In the morning early career professionals from several fields in the industry will share stories of their interests, education and career path with the students. They will be joined in the forenoon by professional geologist and career planning mentor, Patrick McAndless, who will present his unique student workshop, Discovering Your Brand.
After lunch, students will be accompanied by volunteers, most of them post-secondary students and young professionals in related fields, as they explore the large conference trade show to speak with representatives from the exploration companies, mining companies, and many technical supply and service businesses that are part of the mineral development sector. Students will also enjoy learning how to pan for gold with Yukon Dan.
