In the spring of 2019, the CIM Toronto Branch organized a mine tour for students in earth science-related fields. Branch executives accompanied three geology students, three engineering students and four MBA students on a six-day, 2,000-kilometre trek to the Abitibi gold belt. Despite their education, many of the students had never been to a mine. With this tour, they got to see first-hand exploration projects, underground and open-pit mines, mill and processing operations.
