MERC MSc Graduate Opportunity at Eldorado Gold’s Ormaque gold Discovery, May 2021
MERC, in partnership with Eldorado Gold, is seeking a MSc student to undertake a field-based structural MSc project at Eldorado’s Ormaque zone, a new discovery at the Lamaque Gold Mine. This project is within southeastern Abitibi greenstone belt near Val d’Or, Quebec. The goal of this project is to provide a structural context for gold mineralization at Ormaque focused primarily on structural observations in drill core and underground mapping, when available. These will be combined with standard petrography (transmitted and reflected light) and SEM observations. The project will also address host lithologies, alteration systematics and relative timing of the hydrothermal event. The project will be supervised by Drs Bruno Lafrance, Ross Sherlock and Tim Baker, at MERC and Eldorado Gold.
The successful candidate will integrate within the Lamaque exploration team adhering to their health and safety standards while in the field and working collectively to advance an understanding of the Ormaque deposit. Experience in greenstone belt geology and a working knowledge of French is an asset.
To apply, please forward your application and cover letter to Courtney Folz at firstname.lastname@example.org. The application should include: a CV including academic transcripts, contact details and the names of three referees. Review of applications will begin immediately, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
