Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience recently joined the Artemis Project (“Artemis”), an organization formed to enhance gender diversity in mining by empowering female entrepreneurs. Many exploration and mining companies have recognized that gender diversity and inclusivity is essential to build stronger economies, achieve internationally set goals for development and sustainability, and to improve business outcomes for companies. Through Artemis, Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience is exposed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“UN SDGs”; https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/), a set of approaches to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

Ronacher McKenzie’s Principal Geologist, Elisabeth Ronacher, attended the Geochemistry of Mineral Deposits Gordon Research Conference in Waterville Valley, NH, United States, from August 5-10, 2018. The Gordon Research Conferences “provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research” (www.grc.org). The conference brought together geoscientists from industry, academia and government to discuss the latest advances in ore deposit research (https://www.grc.org/geochemistry-of-mineral-deposits-conference/2018/).
The PDAC’s Student Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop (“SIMEW”;http://www.pdac.ca/members/students/s-imew/s-imew-2018) is currently taking place in northern Ontario. Every spring, the PDAC brings together the top geoscience students in the country to participate in this workshop.
Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience attended the AME Roundup in January. It was held in the west wing of the Vancouver Convention Centre, and although not under the beautiful sails like in previous years, the change in location was convenient due to the proximity of the Cambridge House Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. Delegates were happy for the convenience to attend events at both conferences with relative ease.
We will be delivering a talk titled “Intelligent Exploration Data Integration: A Roadmap to Success”.
