Mineral Deposits and Precambrian Geology (PhD)

Push the boundaries of geoscience

Survol

Position yourself for employment success at the world-class Harquail School of Earth Sciences and its Mineral Exploration Research Centre; in Sudbury, the world’s largest mineral exploration and mining-service cluster. 

Access one of the largest Earth science resource centres in North America that provides ample opportunities to find employment within your field while studying at Laurentian University. Expand your knowledge as a professional in a field full of research and networking opportunities. Located in the same building, the Willet Green Miller Centre, are several mining-related organizations such as the Goodman School of Mines, MIRARCO Mining Innovation, the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, and the Ontario Geological Survey.

Prepare for a career of pushing the boundaries of geoscience research and innovation in today's mineral exploration industry, government and consulting agencies. The Harquail School contains a wide array of analytical instrumentation to support both the research and educational needs, and benefits from sharing laboratory facilities with the Geo Labs, one of the largest and most advanced geoscience analytical facilities in North America.
