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.

Université Laval - INRS - ETE Field Trip (2017)

In 2017, Université Laval - INRS - ETE SEG Student Chapter organized an international geological field trip to the United States: Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. The field trip started in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 29th and ended on May 14th in the same city. The main objective was to visit the most important mining districts and to learn about regional geological settings, local geology, hydrothermal alterations, ore setting, as well as current metallogenic models of porphyry, epithermal, skarn and Carlin deposit types in this region.
