An exceptional showcase for university students

Andrea Amortegui

Québec Mines, the crossroads of geosciences, is an excellent communication platform for mining industry players, government representatives, regional decision-makers, university researchers, business people and the general public. It is also an ideal opportunity to promote excellence among up-and-coming students, which is why there will be two contests for undergraduates.  


For those who enjoy a challenge, Québec Mines will hold a 12-hour marathon during which teams must develop exploration projects that adhere to the principles of sustainable development. At stake: a $3,000 prize provided by SIDEX.


For those who prefer to showcase their research work, Québec Mines will once again host the traditional AQUEST contest, which will award $5200 in scholarships to the winning students.

More details are available on the Québec Mines’ website under the Contest section.
