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.

If you are interested in becoming a student member of the SEG student chapter at Colorado School of Mines, please contact our SEG Secretary and you will be added to our e-mail list. The annual membership fee is $20/year.

We encourage you to also become a member of the Society by filling out the membership application. Membership will give you on-line access to the journal Economic Geology and the SEG Newsletter. In addition, all student members are eligible for at least 20% discounts on the purchase of SEG publications and significantly reduced registration fees at conferences, courses, and field trips sponsored by the Society. The Society offers significant benefits to student members through its student-support programs. In 2018, one member of our student chapter received the prestigious Graduate Student Fellowship. In addition, one students was awarded with a Student Research Grant. SEG also organizes field trips to major mining districts around the world and provides funding to subsidize student participation on the field trips.

The 2018-2019 officers of the student chapter are: Zachary Palmer (President), Duncan Caesar McIntire (Vice-President), Nicole Arnush (Treasurer), and Garrett Gissler (Secretary).
