The Challenge

The Prospect Generator Challenge is a “Sharks Tank” style live event to be held during the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) Convention. The goal is to get students and early-career geoscientists excited about the mineral exploration industry, to create jobs for students and early-career geoscientists in this sector, and to educate the general public about how this industry is evolving and improving. This Challenge is a catalyst to springboard the mineral exploration industry into a generation of renewed growth by bridging the gap between academia and industry, and by nurturing socially conscious entrepreneurs who want their mineral projects to have a sustainable benefit for all stake holders.
