SGA Baltic Student Chapter

Published: 26 November 2019

The Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits – SGA is one of the most important societies for economic geologist in the world. It provides a unique opportunity for students and professionals to gain in-depth knowledge in metallogeny, mineralogy, structural geology and geochemistry applied to mineral deposits. It also brings together both industry and academia in events such as short-courses, conferences, keynotes and publications allowing networking opportunities.

The SGA has presence all over the world through student chapters. The Luleå University of Technology belongs to the Baltic Student Chapter together with the AGH University of Science and Technology, Stockholm University, and University of Oulu. Every year we plan and develop numerous activities for students and professionals.

Activities 2019

SGA roadmap

Outcrop Crawl

Held on 21st of September 2019

A group of 10 undergraduate, graduate students and researchers cycled around the city of Luleå looking for the best outcrops to learn more about some of the rocks and structures that compose the city’s crystalline basement. At the end of the activity we had some good fika and got to know more about each of the new members.


Orienteering + structural geology challenge

Held on the 19th of October 2019

In this event, we combined a popular sport in Sweden such as orienteering with structural geology. We met at Mjölkuddberget in Luleå where participants had to find their way around the forest looking for outcrops to measure geological structures. Several outcrops served as stations, where after measuring a given geological structure, each group had to perform some calculations to be able to find the right way to the next outcrop. At the end we had some good fika and talk.
