Touch down in Dublin! ☘️Our LU SEG student chapter begins their 10 day journey in Ireland today. In collaboration with iCRAG, the Irish Centre for Research in Applied #Geosciences, Ireland’s national geoscience research centre, the students have designed a field trip to visit the Irish carbonate-hosted Zn-Pb deposits. Read more about their trip at hes.laurentian.ca ! @societyofeconomicgeologists Did you know some minerals emit light when under ultraviolet light, ie. glow in the dark?! 🌚💡 Scheelite is an ore mineral that is commonly found in tungsten deposits that will emit light when under ultraviolet light. HES Alumnus and Research Scientist Rémy Poulin, is one of the first to investigate the properties of scheelite on a world-wide scale to uncover potential geochemical patterns that could aid in the discovery of new ore deposits. See what he found through his research on our website!

First year geology students team ‘Excelsior’ win by landslide. Their team won by collecting 190,050 dollars through gameplay with industry and government professionals in the Willet Green Miller Center! #earthscience #laurentian #geology #geoscience This sample is from the Bancroft area! It includes various rare minerals including a premium Canadian resource Nepheline that is used in glass and ceramics ⛏🧐 thanks @beckettbro ! “Fieldwork at the Casino Deposit, September 2017.
