Presented by: Andy Randell, SGDS Hive

Course Description:

In this course, students will get the opportunity to learn more about the dynamic roles they will play in the exploration industry. The day will be split into two sessions, with the popular ‘Industry Speed Dating’ in the morning, followed by ‘Exploration Monopoly’ in the afternoon.

  • Industry “Speed Dating” allows small groups of people to talk face to face with industry leaders and learn about all aspects of the exploration industry.
  • Alongside the more obvious geological applications, this is an opportunity to learn about First Nations, Environmental, New Technology and Laboratory testing, all of which play a vital role in the day to day life of an explorationist.
  • The afternoon session of “Exploration Monopoly” follows on from the success of the 2017 session. This is a team-based game played in the style of Monopoly, where attendees can take a prospect through to a discovery – if the cards are right!

Who should attend:

  • Recent and undergraduates are encouraged to attend
