Student Chapter Field Trips


SEG invites all Student Chapters and other sponsored student groups to make video recordings of the technical aspects of their field trips. Videos should preferably focus on the geology of world-class ore deposits, or deposits/terrains that are significant in some way related to economic geology. Content should capture field views (including open pits and underground), close-ups of rocks (lithologic units, typical alteration, and mineralization), interviews with mine geologists, participants, etc., in a systematic fashion, such that other students and all economic geologists can learn about the geology and mining of related deposits.

Accepted videos will be uploaded to the SEG YouTube Channel, highlighted here, and shared on social media.
See below for video requirements and submission.Information at bottom of page.

CODES/Lakehead Iceland and Sweden Field Trip (2015)

Stephanie Sykora's short video documenting the SEG Student Chapter Iceland and Sweden field trip, organized in conjunction with her university, CODES (University of Tasmania, Australia), and Lakehead University (Canada). They visited Sweden and Iceland as a joint field trip with the aims to: (1) learn about mineralization and alteration processes related to hydrothermal systems in ancient and modern volcanic terranes; (2) compare the characteristics of modern volcanoes with ancient volcanic environments; and (3) recognise important features relating to a variety of deposit styles, including VHMS, porphyry-Cu and Kiruna-type magnetite-apatite deposits.

Field trip guides included Professor David Cooke (CODES/University of Tasmania), Dr. Jocelyn McPhie (University of Tasmania) and Professor Peter Hollings (Lakehead University), as well as local experts including Rodney Allen, Nils Jansson, and Haraldur Sigurðsson.
