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 was amongst the 25000+ attendees at the annual Prospector and Developers Association of Canada in March 2018.
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.
On Wednesday, January 17, Principal Geophysicist Jenna McKenzie was invited to talk to the second-year Earth System Evolution class about possible career paths in the Earth Sciences. This was organized through the University of Toronto Career Exploration and Education's Explore It program.
Every ten years, the mineral exploration industry gathers in Toronto to participate in a conference to discuss our challenges, showcase innovation, and promote integration between Geology, Geophysics, Geochemistry and Remote Sensing.
These conferences, now under the official entity of DMEC, the Decennial Mineral Exploration Conferences group, have been held in the seventh year of every decade, starting in 1967.
In May, I was invited to a special luncheon hosted by the Chancellor of the University of Toronto, the Honourable Michael H. Wilson, P.C., C.C., B.COM., LL.D.
Mr. Wilson is a Canadian diplomat, politician and business leader. He is a Companion of the Order of Canada and holds honorary degrees from the University of Toronto, Trinity College at the University of Toronto, York University, the University of Calgary, and the Royal Military College of Canada.
On April 20th, 2017, Jenna McKenzie spoke to the University of Toronto Earth Science graduating class at the "Earth Ring" ceremony.
The Earth Science Ring Ceremony, is a ritual of welcome into the profession of newly qualified geologists and geophysicists was started in Alberta in 1975. The ceremony carries many of the same passages written by Kipling for the Engineers' Iron Ring Ceremony, and symbolizes the commitment and responsibility that come with geoscience profession. The ring is marked with the cossed hammer of geology, and with the seismic trace of geophysics.
Jenna McKenzie of Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience Inc. is organizing this year’s annual Canadian Exploration Geophysical Society (“KEGS”) Symposium, to take place the Saturday March 4th, 2017, the day before the start of the PDAC. Hosted at the Intercontinental Hotel, Jenna McKenzie, the 2017 KEGS Vice President, has helped organize a variety of exceptional talks on the theme “Innovation and New Methods in Geophysics” along with her fellow KEGS executive members. Registration is now open at www.kegsonline.org
Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience will attend the AME Roundup 2017 from January 22 to 26, 2017.
We are in the homestretch of planning for the decennial mineral exploration conference Exploration ’17. Hosted every year in Toronto, Exploration ’17 brings together mineral explorationists from all over the world to discuss the latest developments and to reflect on the past ten years and looking towards the next ten. Jenna McKenzie of Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience Inc., is volunteering as Conference Secretary, and is busy planning this exciting event. Please visit www.exploration17.com to view the technical program and register for this exciting conference.
