Dates of existence


The Ore Gangue, the geological students' society, is one of the oldest students' societies at the University of Saskatchewan. Established in 1934, with faculty--and faculty wives--as honorary members, the society promotes academic activities and competitions, sponsors social and athletic events, and publishes the geology students' yearbook, "The Concentrates." In a 50th anniversary tribute, the head of the Department of Geology also noted the Society's "intangible" contribution of "promoting...good relationship between students, faculty and staff...It is no accident that when the department speaks, it speaks as a united department and presents a common front. The Ore Gangue is in no small measure responsible for such success as the department has enjoyed."
