It is widely acknowledged that there is a worldwide shortage of well-trained young professionals in the field of mineral deposit research and economic geology. By establishing the SGA Educational Fund (SGA EF), the SGA wishes to contribute to training the next generation of economic geologists by providing support for educational activities in mineral deposit geology for students and professionals from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes participation to national and international scientific meetings, field trips, workshops, short courses or other related activities organized or sponsored by the SGA. Your contribution to the SGA Educational Fund will help achieve these objectives.
The donation levels are as follows: Diamond (€10,000 or more), Platinum (€5,000 to 9,999), Gold (€2,500 to 4,999), and Silver level (€1,000 to 2,499). Contributions will be acknowledged in SGA News, the SGA website and at SGA’s Biennial Meetings for a period of one year. To show how serious SGA Council is about the implementation of this educational initiative, SGA has already contributed €70,000 towards the SGA Educational Fund. We ask all in the mining and exploration industry to meet this challenge and contribute to the SGA Educational Fund – a worthwhile investment into the future of your enterprises.
