    Greetings STL Section Members!

    Thursday, November 10, will be our scholarship awards, and we will have a special guest in the Section helping hand out the awards.  SME President Ron Parratt will be at our meeting to give a state of the Society update (what's going on at SME and what initiatives and priorities the society has for this year).  Ron is traveling here from Reno, NV to be part of our Section for the night, so let's give him a warm welcome.  

    Ron has over 40 years of exploration experience for precious metals including service with Santa Fe Pacific Gold, Homestake Mining Company, AuEx Ventures and Renaissance Gold Inc. During his years of precious metals experience Ron had direct involvement in the discovery of the Rabbit Creek (now Twin Creeks), Lone Tree, Trenton Canyon,
    Gold Hill and Long Canyon gold deposits- all in Nevada. Ron is a graduate of Purdue University with degrees in geochemistry and economic geology. He is a Certified Professional Geologist with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, a Registered Geologist in California and a Professional Geologist in Wyoming. He is a Fellow of the Society of Economic Geologists and a past President of the SEGF Foundation. He is also a past President of the American Exploration and Mining Association. Ron is a Distinguished Member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration, a past board member of the society and is the 2022 President of SME

    We will be awarding 6 scholarships to students from Missouri S&T following the President's address.  I do not have the names of the recipients at this time, but if you are interested in talking to some potential new employees or recruiting some interns or entry level engineers, this would be a great opportunity to mingle with our student section from Missouri S&T.

    So please join us Thursday, November 10, at 6 pm--Buffet Dinner served at 6:30, Open Bar all night--at Andre's Banquet and Catering South at 4254 Telegraph Road. Details in the attached flyer.  

    Hope to see you there!!
