August 22-23
Title: SEG Workshop: The Geology and Geochemistry of Gold Deposits
Location: Nancy, France

 This pre-SGA Meeting SEG workshop is for geologists from academia and industry who want to improve their understanding about the geology and genesis of gold deposits. The workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of all aspects of the geology of gold ores in both arc environments and metamorphic terranes. Aspects of the geology, geochemistry, mineralogy, alteration, structure, tectonics, and exploration approaches will be covered for the main gold deposit types of interest to explorationists.

Presenters: Richard J. Goldfarb and Stuart F. Simmons


SGA Meeting registration opens February 15, 2015. Register

August 24-27
Title: 13th SGA Biennial Meeting
Location: Nancy Centre Prouvé | Nancy, France

 The biennial SGA meetings provide excellent opportunities to present and exchange knowledge within the field of mineral deposit research.The 13th SGA meeting will be organized by the French CNRS and a group of French, Belgian and German universities: Nancy, Liège, Aachen and Louvain. It will focus for this 13th edition on "Mineral Resources in a Sustainable World". The SGA was founded in 1965 in Heidelberg and this 2015 SGA meeting will celebrate the 50th anniversary meeting of the Society!


September 27-30
Title: SEG 2015
Location: Hobart, TAS, Australia

 SEG 2015: World-Class Ore Deposits: Discovery to Recovery

This joint SEG-CODES Conference will include key presentations from leaders in research and industry on the discovery of world-class ore deposits, their geology and the recovery of metals from ores, and cover the issues and controversies that affect exploration.

Short courses and workshops will look at skarn deposits, sediment-hosted gold deposits, footprints of major mineralizing systems, and uranium deposits. Field trips will visit major mining districts in Australia, Indonesia, and New Zealand.

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.
