A great PDAC for MERC and Metal Earth

MERC and Metal Earth had a great PDAC with many meetings about potential research projects, hosting a successful Gold Short Course and sponsoring the Student Mineral Colloquim. 
 

MERC Gold Short Course:

An assessment of Precambrian gold deposit models from deep to shallow crustal levels

The Short Course was very well attended and sold out before the conference with 112 participants. A full course description can be found here.

Metal Earth Superior Data Compilation

Metal Earth released a Superior Data Compilation days before the conference and provided booth visitors with USB keys loaded with the compilation. The Superior Data Compilation is a comprehensive dataset of integrated and standardized geospatial geological data within the Superior Craton. You can access PDF downloads as well as the GIS compilation zip folder on the MERC website here
 

9th Annual Student Mineral Colloquium 

MERC is a proud sponsor of the Student Mineral Colloquium at PDAC which highlights student research on ore deposits across North America and Internationally. You may read through some posters from students of the Harquail School of Earth Sciences below.
