Along the way, several formal and informal discussions highlighted the contrasting ages and characteristics of calc-alkaline and alkaline porphyry systems, both of which are remarkably well represented in British Columbia. The last evening in Manning Park featured a wrap-up technical discussion along with the traditional SEGF-hosted closing dinner and the presentation of certificates of completion to field trip participants. This farewell gathering successfully cemented the camaraderie developed over the trip among the students and between the students and professionals. Testimonials submitted by participants attest to the success of the trip in all respects. The students acknowledged the step change in their understanding of porphyry systems over the course of the trip. Many also commented on the welcoming and supportive nature of the geological community in British Columbia, recognizing the importance of meeting and establishing networks with the wide variety of people associated with all stages of exploration, mine development and production. Some specifically mentioned returning to British Columbia in the future to pursue a career in exploration and/or mine operations. These are future leaders in the worldwide mining industry – we wish them all the best of luck in their continued studies and look forward to welcoming them into the industry.
