President of Americas, Stan Wholley kicks off this year’s Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) Convention by watching some of the brightest young geologists pitch their mineral exploration ideas to a panel of distinguished judges.
The Prospect Generator Challenge Finals, presented by Next Gen Geo and co-hosted by the Lassonde Institute of Mining, is a “Sharks Tank” style live event to be held on Sunday, March 3rd, the first day of the PDAC Convention.
The goal of this Challenge is to get students and early-career geoscientists excited about the mineral exploration industry, to create jobs for students and early-career geoscientists in this sector, and to educate the general public about how this industry is evolving and improving.
This Challenge is a catalyst to springboard the mineral exploration industry into a generation of renewed growth by bridging the gap between academia and industry, and by nurturing socially conscious entrepreneurs who want their mineral projects to have a sustainable benefit for all stake holders.
