University of Leeds School of Earth and Environment

In 2012, the Canada-UK Foundation awarded funds to 21 students from the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds to attend the Vancouver Exploration Roundup, one of the world’s leading mining and mineral explorations conferences.

At the event, the students were able to discuss new developments in the geological world with top industry delegates and forge links with their Canadian counterparts at the University of British Columbia.

The two cohorts aim to work together to develop international trips to mining areas for future students in their departments.
