Colton Vessey, Ty Magee, Matthew Nadeau, Brendon Samson, and Austin Castle, four geology and one geophysics majors at the University of Saskatchewan, have announced that they are putting together a multi-disciplinary team to enter the Frank Arnott Award (FAA) under the Apprentice category. Colton Vessey stated: " The Frank Arnott Award gives us the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge that we have acquired during our undergraduate degrees. The project will strengthen us in data management as well as finding new interpretations within these datasets making this a unique experience. This gives us insight into the challenges and success that can occur in independent group projects; thus preparing us for the competitive industry environment.”   - Feb. 26, 2016, 4:55 pm EST

Memorial University graduates announce their participation in the Frank Arnott Award!

Angela Carter-McAuslan and Drew Jones, two mineral exploration graduate students at Memorial University, have announced that they are putting together a multi-disciplinary team to enter the Frank Arnott Award (FAA) under the Apprentice category.

Co-Leader Drew Jones stated: "We feel the motivation for participating in the Frank Arnott Award (FAA) is simple. As graduate students in geoscience, this challenge gives us a chance to test the skills that we have now spent many years developing.  For students whose research and interests lie in the realm of mineral exploration, there are no other challenges like the FAA. Participating in a challenge like this forces students to step out of their own particular research comfort zones and collaborate with peers in other disciplines.  For those interested in a career in mineral exploration, the FAA offers students the ability to experience a preview of the type of work we may very well be doing in the near future."  - Feb. 9, 2016, 12:17 pm EST
