2017 Events
September 24-27Title: MEMO 2017
Location: Saskatoon, SK, Canada

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.


October 21-25Title: Exploration '17
Location: Toronto, ON, Canada

Exploration '17 is the sixth of the very successful series of DMEC decennial mining exploration conferences, which have been held in the seventh year of every decade starting in 1967. The theme of the Exploration '17 conference is "Integrating the Geosciences: The Challenge of Discovery", featuring a multi-national, multi-disciplinary technical programme, exhibition, workshops and field schools.

October 21-28Title: Geochemistry of Hydrothermal Ore Deposits Short Course
Location: University of Ottawa | Ottawa, ON, Canada

Orogenic Gold, Porphyry-related Systems, Epithermal Systems, Iron Oxide Cu-Au Deposits, VMS, and more! Leading experts will introduce the basic principles that govern the evolution of ore-forming fluids, the importance of different ore-fluid reservoirs, the interaction of hydrothermal fluids with different rock types, and the causes of mineral precipitation. Case studies will be presented for some of the world's most important ore deposit types in both continental and submarine settings, with an emphasis on where ore fluids originate, how and where they derive their metals, and where they end up — all fundamental pieces of the mineral systems puzzle. The material will be suitable for graduate students with advanced 3rd and 4th-year training in ore deposits and for professionals in industry.

2018 Events
January 26-28Title: Goodman Gold Challenge
Location: Sudbury, ON, Canada

The Goodman Gold Challenge (GGC) is a mining investment competition organized by the Goodman School of Mines at Laurentian University. The concept is that three CEOs from gold mining companies listed on the TSX come to the University, they pitch their company to the participants, who must then act as advisers and recommend one in which they should invest. The competition is open to all undergraduate students and the winning team receives the cash equivalent of four ounces of gold!
