Next Gen Geo is a non-profit organization with a mission to support the development of students and early-career geoscientists who are interested in mining and mineral exploration. We run several innovative programs to this end. Learn about our programs below.
Distinguished industry professionals share their wisdom on a variety of topics relevant to our industry, bridging the gap with academia.
Gain practical skills that you can confidently put on your resume! Past workshops include core logging, 3D geological modeling, and digitizing geological maps.
Modeled after a pub crawl, for geologists who are thirsty for knowledge! We’ll take you on a tour of a few mining/exploration companies in downtown Toronto, where you will learn about some of their cool projects and meet their team!
Mining Analysis Group
How do the hot shots on Bay Street figure out which stocks to buy and which to short? Each meeting will be a deep dive into a mining/exploration company that will teach you the fundamentals of mining analysis in context, with a side of colourful discussion.
Machine Learning for Geos Group
The way exploration is being done is changing rapidly, and big data is at the forefront of this revolution. The purpose of this group is to prepare young geos for the jobs of the future by inspiring, advancing knowledge, and promoting hands-on experience in machine learning within our community. We will host machine learning related presentations and work together on mining-related data science projects.
Mineral Exploration Group
Learn how to generate and evaluate mineral exploration targets. Participants will have a chance to pitch their exploration ideas to a panel of investors and industry pros!
