Name Country Affiliation Description
Edward M. Baker Canada I Epithermal and porphyry Cu-Au systems
Regina M. Baumgartner Peru I Porphyry systems focusing on base and precious metal epithermal deposits
Luciano M. Bocanegra Chile I Economic Geologist Consultant. Experience focused in field experienced geologist in porphyry and epithermal systems exploration. Interest in applied research to mining exploration.
Maria Boni USA A Non-sulfide ore deposits; Sediment-hosted Zn-Pb ores; Hydrothermal dolomitization
David P. Braxton Chile I Research interests are generally focused on porphyry and epithermal systems
Mark N. Burdett Australia A Current Ph.D. topic: The role of volatile-rich melts on the distribution of PGE deposits in magmatic systems. The aim of my project is to investigate how volatile phases control Pt-Pd-enrichment in fractionating magmatic systems. By combing both experimental and field-based research, I will explore the concept that volatile elements play a fundamental role in concentrating Pt and Pd in many magmatic deposits and provide insights into system fertility and better exploration vectors.
