Collaborations - Implemented / signed Grants (2018)

The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI) has an established grant program by which it seeks proposals to leverage the expertise in Canadian universities to support mineral exploration in established or emerging mining camps through the provision of innovative and integrated public geoscience knowledge.

Following an open call for proposals in late 2017, 19 proposals were received and assessed, of those, 10 were recommended for funding by the TGI grant evaluation committee.  Agreements will be listed below as they are executed/signed.
