2018 Events
January 12-20
Title: Copper-Silver-Gold Metallogeny of Northern Chile
Location: Copiapó, Chile
Website: Register Online

 Copper-Silver-Gold Metallogeny of Northern Chile: Copiapó to Antofagasta

This field course is offered by the SEG Education and Training Committee, and emphasizes the alteration-mineralization mineralogy and geochemistry of hydrothermal systems characterizing northern Chile from Copiapó to Antofagasta. Core reviews and mine visits will comprise porphyry Cu-Mo, Cu-Au skarn-manto-vein, high-sulfidation Au-Ag-(Cu) epithermal, and Chilean "manto-type" Cu-Ag systems, with visits complemented by evening “take-away” discussion sessions. Use of activity diagrams to explain the alteration and mineralization assemblages will help participants understand the geochemistry of hydrothermal systems and their vagaries.

Early Bird Deadline: December 1, 2017


February 3-4
Title: Orogenic Gold in Africa and Worldwide
Location: University of Cape Town | Rondebosch, South Africa
Website: Register Online

 This two-day course will be held the weekend prior to the Mining Indaba meeting and will focus on the geology of and exploration for orogenic gold deposits, the most widespread type of gold deposit globally. Leading experts will provide descriptions of the most important Precambrian and Phanerozoic examples of orogenic gold ores formed in the world's young accretionary orogens and old cratonic greenstone belts. Topics to be covered include tectonic and structural controls, geological characteristics, geochemical and geophysical signatures, geochronological relationships, and exploration strategies.

Early Bird Deadline: January 15, 2018
