13 Feb 2015

Congratulations to BEES MSc in Exploration Field Geosciences class for establishing the first Irish Chapter of the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG).

SEG is an international organization including representatives from industry, academia, and government institutions with 7000 members worldwide.

The objectives of the Society are as follows:

  • To advance the science of geology through the scientific investigation of mineral deposits and mineral resources and the application thereof to exploration, mineral resource appraisal, mining and mineral extraction.
  • To disseminate basic and applied scientific information arising from investigations of mineral deposits and mineral resources through SEG publications, meetings, symposia, conferences, field trips, short courses, workshops and lecture series.
  • To advance the status of the profession of economic geology, and to maintain a high professional and ethical standard among its members.

We are very proud that this year’s MSc class have established the national chapter and look forward to the many upcoming SEG events including guest speakers and excursions.
