The Toronto Geological Discussion Group (TGDG)
is a local learned society for geoscience and mining professionals. Our mission is to provide ongoing and relevant education and networking opportunities to our members and the wider public, with emphasis on geology, new deposit models and the application of exploration techniques. We are funded through our members, and through company sponsors who share our passion for geology.
Our community consists of over 200 members belonging to the thriving mining community centered in Toronto of geologists, engineers, financiers, mining support services and students.
Our programme provides this community with bi-monthly late afternoon technical meetings, from September to May, and two half day symposiums annually. Attendance at TGDG events qualifies as part of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD), required to maintain professional status as a Geoscientist.
We support university students through subsidizing their membership fees and attendance at TGDG symposiums. We also provide funding to students for field trips and other organized educational events that support the aims of the TGDG.
The TGDG welcomes new members. Join here
