The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has received more than $50,000 worth of software that students will be able to use in geological modeling.
The school says the student chapter of the Society of Economic Geologists received the gift from the technology company Leapfrog.
The software is geared toward mining, hydrogeology and geothermal energy industries. It is used in the study of mineral deposits.
Kelli McCormick is an instructor at the school's mining engineering and management department. She says the program is commonly used by exploration and mine geologists.
McCormick says the donation will benefit students who may need to know the software's inner workings before entering the workforce.
