Goodman School of Mines signs a new deal to expand mining education and research into Latin America

Laurentian University’s Goodman School of Mines (GSM) and the Core Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to create new eras of knowledge, discovery and innovation in Latin America, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) aiming to promote GSM educational and research activities in Peru, Chile and Brazil.


By combining the connections of Core Foundation and the strong mining education and research at Laurentian University, the two parties can begin to develop relationships in countries that require world-class mining training as well as meaningful international partnerships to further mining education, training, and research in Latin America.


“Countries like Peru need our strong expertise in mining-related disciplines. This agreement has the potential of opening up a new market in Latin America to bring qualified students and research collaboration to Laurentian University,” explained Osman Abou-Rabia, Interim Executive Director, Goodman School of Mines, Laurentian University.
