Show Notes July 14, 2022

Thanks for listening to #ExplorationMatters, the podcast for people interested in matters related to mineral exploration and why exploration matters.

Episode three was produced on July 12, 2022.

George Richard, Career Education Coordinator, School District 83

In this week’s episode, we go back to school and talk to a high school teacher about engaging the next generation of workers in mineral exploration and mining.

In an in-depth interview, we ask George Richard, a Career Education Coordinator from south-central BC, what options high school students – the future workforce – are considering and what kinds of unique learning experiences we can offer to turn their attention to mineral exploration.

Tune in to hear how finding copper mineralization on a field trip convinced one high school student that working outside as a geologist might be more fun and lucrative than her previous plan to become a dental hygienist!

For more details about the field trip mentioned in this episode, read our story about Engaging the Next Generation of Mineral Explorers.

In the news, we mention New Gold’s second quarter results, Talisker Resources’ high-grade results in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt, Osisko Development’s participation agreement with the Williams Lake First Nation at Barkerville, and Pacific Ridge Exploration’s progress at Kliyul.
