Student story

George Pietrusinski

George Pietrusinski graduated with a B.Sc. in Physical Geography and a certificate in Earth Sciences. Armed with this solid foundation, he began working in mining and exploration within a few months of graduation. He loves the work and people associated with it. His worksites take him to different remote areas of BC, in search of localized metal ore deposits such as copper and gold.

Currently, George is a geologist with Equity Exploration where he collects and analyzes diamond drill core for geomechanical characteristics such as faults and joints. Engineers need this collected data to inform block cave mining
