CSA Global and the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) are pleased to announce the establishment of two $3,000 bursaries with the aim to assist geoscientists and engineers in a field related to mining with their further education in Canada.
The bursary will be available to one male and one female 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 applicant 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 close December 1, 2018.
Joan Bath is a true pioneer for women in mining – she was the first female to graduate as a Mining Engineer in Australia in 1974, the first to be employed as a mining engineer in industry and the first to gain a first-class quarry manager certification in Western Australia.
Peter Howe was the founder of ACA Howe International, a geological consultancy that CSA Global merged with in August 2016 to commence operations in Toronto.
