Prof Mike Solomon

The meeting will promote collaboration to understand the multiscale physical and chemical processes in mineral systems that create giant resources and how these relate to Earth systems. New concepts and technologies will build on existing understanding to offer innovative and practical exploration solutions.

To aid discussion, places are limited and prospective attendees are asked to contribute a short 100 word abstract highlighting their area of interest and reasons for attending.

Posters will form an integral part of the scientific program. Speakers will be invited by session conveners and those interested in speaking should contact the conveners directly.
