The CODES SEG Student Chapter at the University of Tasmania is a student branch of
the Society of Economic Geologists, dedicated to pursing and disseminating geological
knowledge amongst its members. In recent years the committee has organised seminars
featuring internationally recognised specialists and taken its members to Indonesia
(2009), Thailand (2010) and China (2011) to visit key geological provinces. In addition
to the seminars and trips, the SEG Student Chapter also organises numerous social
and fundraising events in order to continue its efforts to advance geological understanding
through the scientific investigation of mineral deposits and resources.
In 2012, the committee intends to organise a trip to Southern Africa to visit some
of the world’s best known gold, platinum and copper regions.
President - Francisco Testa
The SEG student chapter is always looking for new sponsorship in order to fund its
important work at the University of Tasmania. Organising international excursions
is time-consuming and costly, but we believe the time and effort is worth it in order
to give our members the best experience we can.
If you, or your company, would like to sponsor the 2012 trip to South Africa and
Botswana, or you think you might be able to help out in some other way, please don’t
hesitate to contact us. We want to hear from you. We really, really do.
