2017 Events
February 21-23Title: Gold17@Rotorua
Location: Rotorua, New Zealand

An international symposium in the heartland of the active hydrothermal systems of the Taupo Volcanic Zone.

With its thermal springs and geothermal systems representing active examples of epithermal gold processes, Rotorua is the perfect location for the Gold17 Symposium in February 2017. The conference is being convened jointly by the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) and Geoscientists Symposia. It continues the regular series of gold events that commenced with Gold82 in Zimbabwe and was followed by meetings in southern Africa, Australia and the Americas. Symposium sponsors include OceanaGold, the AusIMM, GNS Science and NZ Petroleum and Minerals.


September 25-28Title: granites2017@benalla
Location: Benalla, Victoria, Australia

This conference, held in Benalla in September 2017, will bring together granite experts from around the world, from universities and industry in Australia, plus many who have worked on the iconic White and Chappell granite terrains of south-east Australia.

In collaboration with the Geological Society of Australia specialist group, there will be lecture sessions dedicated to non-granite igneous rocks, and another session will be for local non-specialist scientists interested in their country 'backyards'. That 'backyard' is in fact the Strathbogie Ranges comprised of the cordierite-bearing Strathbogie granite and Violet Town Volcanic Complex. Field trips will include the new ideas evolving through current field work and laboratory studies in Australian universities and South Africa.
