Two Earth Sciences co-op students have won top prizes in a photo contest held by the Mining Industry Human Resources Council.

Raja Yarra, a fourth-year student, won the Techno-Mine category for his picture of the St. Andrew Goldfields, Hislop Mine. Meaghan Francis, a third-year student, won in the Safety First! category for her picture of the Ontario Geological Survey at Pickle Lake. She also won in the Adventures in Mining category for her picture of a double rainbow over Noront Esker Camp.

Yarra has completed two work placements at the Canadian Hydrographic Services and the St. Andrew Goldfields. He is also a varsity rower and treasurer of Brock’s Geology Club.

Francis completed her first work placement last summer doing fieldwork for the Ontario Geological Survey. She also volunteered at a Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada conference earlier this year.
