About the Trip

The annual UBC Mining Graduate Research Trip has been a tradition in our department since 2005. Since the first trip to Brazil, students have been all over the world to places like Botswana, South Africa, Chile, China, Australia, and Indonesia.

The goal of these trips is to learn about mining challenges, opportunities, and solutions in a culture other than our own. As we believe mining to be a truly global industry, we hope to take these experiences and apply them throughout our careers.

The location for the 2018 grad research trip is Peru!
