“Unrealized Mineral Deposit” - Glenn Finlay
Glenn started his studies in mining
engineering in 2007 at UBC. He laboured in electrical engineering at
SFU before coming to his senses and emerging from the darkness only
to plunge back into the depths of the Earth. He offers a not
necessarily average picture of the life, work, interests,
activities, and opinions of the next generation of mining engineers.

“From the Ground Up” - Patrick Littlejohn
Patrick Littlejohn is working on his
Masters Thesis in Metallurgy at the University of British
Columbia. He is a self-described computer game nut, who has
turned his love of computer games into a fascination with systems
analysis and mathematical modeling. His father, a teacher on
Vancouver Island, is still not sure if supporting his computer games
habit was a good or bad thing: afterall he will become a miner not a
teacher. He decided to write his InfoMine blog after he read
one too many InfoMine blogs with which he did not agree. Now
you can get the benefit of his insight, opinions, youthful
perspective, and energy. InfoMine is delighted and honored to
have him join the band of bloggers.
