Welcome to the #TGDG!

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.

Resource Estimation with Python TGDG Workshop

Our community consists of over 600 members belonging to the thriving mining community centered in Toronto of geologists, engineers, financiers, mining support services and students.

Our program provides this community with semi-monthly late afternoon geoscience-focused technical meetings and networking receptions from September to May. In addition, based on membership input, the TGDG has also organized mini-symposiums and workshops focusing on a variety of relevant geoscience topics.

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 always welcomes new members. Join here!

The TGDG operates exclusively on membership fees and sponsorships. If you are interested in sponsoring the TGDG, please contact us.
