PDAC, the SEG Canada Foundation, the Mineral Exploration Research Centre, and the Goodman School of Mines in cooperation with Student Leaders from the Laurentian University and Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre SEG Student Chapters will host the Annual “Student Minerals Colloquium” on Tuesday, March 5th in the Room 701 of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) South Building.  The Colloquium will include more than 85 poster presentations highlighting current research on mineral deposits and related studies by students across the world.


Industry Participation

The Student Minerals Colloquium (SMC) provides industry professionals with an unparalleled opportunity to support ongoing student (BSc. (Hons)., MSc., PhD.) research relating to the mining industry. By attending the SMC, industry professionals will gain useful insight into current projects being undertaken by students across the world. Research will cover a wide variety of topics, including gold deposits, base metal deposits, geophysics, environmental sustainability, experimental studies, and more.



All students (BSc, MSc, PhD) working on projects with a link to mineral deposits (e.g. mapping, mineralogy, geochemistry, geophysics, environmental, hydrogeology, etc.) are encouraged to participate. Students working on projects with a link to mineral deposits will present their research to an audience of academics, students, and industry professionals in poster format. The event attracts hundreds of industry participants who are attending PDAC, and therefore provides the widest-possible exposure for current research. Posters will be judged by a panel of academics and industry professionals, and cash prizes will be awarded to winners in multiple categories.

All posters must be written in English, and accompanied by an abstract, which will be published on this webpage in a format that is citable. Instructions to submit abstracts are below, along with details on poster formatting. If you have further questions, please contact smc@laurentian.ca.




We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Student Minerals Colloquium!
