            Excellent professors, beautiful campus and city to live and learn in.

            My education in geological sciences at the University of Saskatchewan provided me with a solid background for my career in mineral exploration. My involvement with the Ore Gangue Student Geological Society (the oldest student society on campus) provided me with many contacts beyond university.
