Joan Bath and Peter Howe Bursary for Advancement in the Mineral industry
CSA Global, in conjunction with the PDAC announced the establishment of two bursaries in 2018 to support geoscientists and mining engineers advance the economic aspects of the mineral industry through research in Canada.
The Student Bursary Award Program is open to tertiary qualified geoscientists and mining engineers, who possess three years industry experience and enrolled to undertake further study in the areas of economic geology or mining in the minerals sector.
The Bursaries are in honour of Joan Bath, an inspirational mining engineer from the company’s headquarters in Perth, Western Australia who has embodied excellence and achievement in the mining industry over several decades.
The second Bursary is named in honour of Peter Howe who founded A.C.A. Howe International in Toronto and went on to establish offices in the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, and Indonesia.
A.C.A. Howe went on to become a leader in global exploration consulting and was responsible for several discoveries around the world, including the Bernic Lake Tantalum mine in Canada, Jabiluka Uranium Mine in Australia, and Mount Muro in Indonesia.
In June 2016, CSA Global joined forces with ACA Howe International in Canada to commence their Toronto operations.
How to participate?
The bursary will be available to two students enrolled in post-graduate studies in geoscience or a field of engineering related to mining, with a minimum of three year’s industry experience.
The applicants must be able to demonstrate a strong interest in the economic development of the mineral industry through exploration, mineral resource estimation, mine geology, mine engineering or metallurgy.
These bursaries target applicants whose thesis topic will contribute to the improved performance of the industry in an economic sense.
This could be through the development of improved methods for exploration or mining, advancement of technology, application of new technology to better understand mineral systems, or by improving the performance of mining companies and mines in the field of sustainability, profitability, innovation or technology.
Applications are now closed.
