Local Partnership To Support Geology Students
This summer F3 Gold and Big Rock Exploration were proud to establish a partnership with Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota. The partnership offers professional opportunities and research based funding for students during their undergraduate programs. This helps to provide substantial benefits to students while pursuing their degree and exposes them to professional work experience, such as internships and field based exploration geology. These opportunities are an competitive advantage for entering the workforce.
“We are excited to initiate a partnership with BHSU and work with the faculty and staff to provide these types opportunities for students.”
“We are excited to initiate a partnership with BHSU and work with the faculty and staff to provide these types opportunities for students” explains Brandon Isakson, VP of Operations at Big Rock. “Some of the initiatives underway include presenting to the senior seminar class, providing field trip materials, and conducting ground breaking research studies in their world class lab facilities.”
Additionally, Big Rock hired a recent geology graduate onto their field staff to work as a geologist on F3 Gold’s Black Hills project. This new hire is a great local asset to our project team.
“We are very excited to be working with Big Rock & F3 Gold. They are a young energetic group of geologists! The opportunities they provide for our students are a great benefit to our geology program here at BHSU. We are looking forward to working with them on various research projects in the Black Hills!”
