Location: Keystone, CO, USA
Website: www.seg2014.org

 SEG 2014: Building Exploration Capability for the 21st Century

As the global exploration industry confronts the twin megatrends of increasing raw material demand and depletion of near surface deposits, we need to build a capability to rise to this challenge. Doing this will require the best new science, the best new tools, and the best new ways of pragmatically applying them. It will also need new concepts and technologies from fi elds that we currently don’t even consider as economic geology. Much of this is already happening today.

Abstract Submission Deadline: April 8, 2014

Website: www.gsnv.org/symposium

 Geological Society of Nevada's 2015 Symposium: New Concepts and Discoveries. Even as much as the world has become available for exploration over the past decade, miners continue to return to Nevada. Why? Political stability, transparent regulatory environment, good infrastructure and great geological potential. Miners return to focus on Nevada's geology and its important mineral deposit types: Carlin, epithermal and intrusion-related gold and silver, as well as other deposit types (porphyry Cu and Mo, IOCG and industrial materials) are also rising in importance.
