This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
Ensuring a secure supply of metals to support a growing global population, increased urbanization and the transition to renewable energies is a priority for the future. Geochemistry is a fundamental tool that can be applied on a range of topics regarding mineral exploration, such as developing genetic models of deposits, regional to camp scale exploration, mineral processing and asset management and reclamation. This research seminar will bring together young researchers in the field of geochemistry of mineral deposits to present and discuss the latest concepts and newest ideas on key processes across all scales. The seminar will be framed by a keynote talk, given by a mineral deposit geochemist, and a mentoring panel, to discuss future career perspectives in the field of mineral deposits. The GRS is an opportunity for Early Career Researchers (PhD and Postdoctoral Researchers) to showcase their research activities and network.
