Title: Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials
Location: Online
Website: bit.ly/criticalmaterials

 Critical Issues Webinar Series: Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials
Co-sponsored by SEG. 11:00 am EST/4:00 pm UTC.

No country in the world produces all of the mineral resources necessary for modern society. International trade plays a critical role in providing these raw materials, forming a global network of production, export, import, and use. This network must continuously adapt to national and international developments in science, technology, politics, and economics. As a result, information on the global flow of raw materials plays a fundamental role in improving national and international resilience to potential supply disruptions and market changes.

 This highly rated 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.

Title: Environmental Geological Models of Mineral Deposits
Location: Toronto, ON, Canada
Website: www.pdac.ca/convention/programming/short-courses/sessions/short-courses/environmental-geological-models-of-mineral-deposits-with-an-emphasis-on-north-america

 Pre-PDAC SEG Course: Environmental Geological Models of Mineral Deposits With an Emphasis on North America

Presenters: Robert Bowell, Robert R. Seal, Stephen Day, Heather Jamieson, Amy Prestia

The aim is to present the environmental implications of mining by looking at the most common mineral deposits in North America from a geologic-geochemical perspective. Through this study, participants will examine the implications for these deposits and their design, operation, and closure with respect to minimizing environmental impacts.
