Craig graduated from Laurentian University in 2016 with a BSc Earth Sciences. He is now working as part of a project team that is evaluating the potential to re-open historically producing gold mines in the Timmins mining camp, and his role is project geologist and geometallurgy discipline lead. Routinely, the job includes managing projects such as diamond drilling, geological modelling, resource modelling, and geometallurgical testing and modelling. More than 100 years of historical data exist for the Timmins mining camp, and the challenge is to find new ways to explore this data to add value to current mining projects.
Living in Sudbury and studying at Laurentian University:
"Studying at LU for me was encouraging because of the closeness of the program to the mining and exploration industry. There is a strong economic geology focus at the Harquail School of Earth Sciences that makes you feel like you are on track for a job in industry and you’ll have meaningful skills when you start working. For an undergraduate student, the community in Sudbury is smaller and less distracting than living in a big city, and the small class sizes at Laurentian allow you to interact with the instructors."
