SEG Student Chapter
The SEG student chapter at the Colorado School of Mines was established on February 26th, 1987 as the first student chapter in the world. It is the mission of this organization to encourage among its members an increasing knowledge of geology and its application to minerals exploration and mining. The student chapter also provides a basis to link students interested in economic geology with professional geoscientists in industry, academia, and government. To achieve these goals, we organize field trips, short courses, guest lectures (one to three a month during semesters), social events, and a biannual student conference which highlights student research in economic geology and related fields at Colorado School of Mines.
