The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada offers an annual Student-Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop (S-IMEW) for senior Canadian undergraduate geosciences students. The 2015 program ran from May 1-15, primarily at Collège Boréal in Sudbury. The second week included a field trip of four days to the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. Carleton's representative this year was graduating student Lianna Vice .
By all accounts, it seems to have been a great experience for Lianna! The two weeks "were packed full of learning and activities that a classroom just couldn't teach you[,] and it all was coming from industry professionals". What's more, it seems that she has made some good friends for life.
All in all, Lianna reports that "SIMEW was a fantastic experience[.] I am so thankful that I was able to attend, it certainly gave me a whole new perspective on the industry."
