Geology Job Openings in California

A few notes on some opportunities in California:

The California Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources currently has two classifications of jobs posted for numerous vacancies – they are looking to recruit through universities for both recent graduates as well as those who have years of experience in the petroleum industry for a senior classification. Geology or petroleum engineering and related fields are where they are looking to recruit from.

Here is a link to their web page announcements.

The California Community Colleges Registry is listing part-time teaching opportunities in geology at Cerritos College, North Orange County, Marin, and San Francisco. Check for updated listings here.

Pictures posted from Fall 2002 Meeting at CSU Sacramento

Pictures have been added to our Facebook page archives, showing scenes from the Fall 2002 meeting, sponsored by CSU Sacramento. The field trip photos are from the tour of hydraulic mine pits in the Sierra Nevada Mother Lode. Although the wreckage from the mining is terrible, time has softened some of the edges, and places like Malakoff Diggings State Park have a strange kind of beauty. Check out the pictures here.

The guidebook for the meeting, including geological road guides, is called "Hydraulic Mining, Delta Land Use, and Water Resources of the Sacramento and American Rivers", and was prepared by Walter Swain and Henry Miyashita. It is available on the Far Western Section Website.
