August 27-September 4
Title: 35th International Geological Congress (IGC)
Location: Cape Town International Convention Centre | Cape Town, South Africa
Website: www.35igc.org

 The Council for Geoscience, together with the Geological Society of South Africa and other collaborators from academia and industry, is currently spearheading the preparations for the 35th IGC in South Africa.

IGC objectives:

  • Contribute, in collaboration with and under the sponsorship of the IUGS, to the advancement of fundamental and applied research in the geological sciences.
  • Provide a general assembly of geoscientists, spanning a wide range of geoscience disciplines, where ideas and informationinformation can be freely exchanged.
  • Emphasise the geological specialities or challenges of the host country or region.
  • Provide the opportunity, by way of geological excursions, to examine geological problems and features in the field.

August 27-28
Title: SEG Workshop at IGC
Location: Cape Town International Convention Centre | Cape Town, South Africa
Website: www.35igc.org

 SEG Workshop at IGC: Gold Deposits: Their Geology, Geochemistry, and Genesis

This two-day workshop is for those who want to improve their understanding about the geology and genesis of gold deposits. The course will provide a comprehensive overview of all aspects of the geology of gold ores in arc environments and metamorphic terranes. Geology, geochemistry, mineralogy, alteration, structure, tectonics, and exploration approaches will be covered for the main gold deposit types.

Presenters: Richard J. Goldfarb and Stuart F. Simmons

August 28
Title: SEG Workshop at IGC
Location: Cape Town International Convention Centre | Cape Town, South Africa
Website: www.35igc.org

 SEG Workshop at IGC: Economic Geology 101

This one-day course will introduce participants to the discipline of economic geology in terms of opportunities for career paths and for academic research. A series of short modules on ore deposit topics, prepared by experts in the field, will range from global metallogeny to deposit scale analysis.

Presenters: Laurence Robb and Judith A. Kinnaird

September 20-24
Title: SEG Pre-GSA Conference Field Trip
Location: Denver, CO, USA
Website: Register Online

 SEG Pre-GSA Conference Field Trip: Mineral Deposits and Geology of the Silver City Mining District and Owyhee Mountains, Southwestern Idaho

The Silver City district, located in the Owyhee Mountains of southwestern Idaho, lies ~80 km SSW of Boise. It is best known for the world-class modern (1977-1998) open-pit low-sulfidation DeLamar Ag-Au deposit at DeLamar Mountain. However, similar ores from War Eagle and Florida Mountains in the district were just as important as DeLamar in the early mining history of the district. The most extensive study of the ores in the district was done by Waldemar Lindgren in the 1890s, where he apparently formulated his early ideas about the nature of epithermal deposits.

Field trip leaders: Jim Saunders, Matt Brueseke, and Virginia Gillerman

Early Bird Deadline: August 15, 2016

September 25-28
Title: SEG 2016 Conference
Location: Cesme, Turkey
Website: www.seg2016.org

 SEG 2016: Tethyan Tectonics and Metallogeny

The Tethyan belt is one of the world's most extensive tectonic and metallogenic belts, extending from Europe across Turkey and Asia Minor, through Iran and Tibet to the Malay peninsula. The SEG-MJD 2016 Conference will focus on collisional tectonics of the Tethyan Orogeny and ophiolite obduction, Cretaceous and Tertiary Tethyan arc magmatism, and later-stage Tethyan sedimentary basin and supergene environment development in an integrated approach to better understand the tectonic and metallogenic evolution of this economically productive region.
