“Unrealized Mineral Deposit” - Glenn Finlay

Unrealized Mineral DepositGlenn 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. He obviously does not speak for all of them. The implications would be dire were this the case.

“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.
