6ias 2023 Perth

6th International Archean Symposium

25-27 July 2023 - Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle WA

Kaya from Noongar Whadjuk boodja! The 6th International Archean Symposium (6IAS) represents the premier international scientific gathering for geoscientists interested in the Early Earth. The program will reflect a decade’s worth of advances in our understanding of how the Early Earth evolved and aims to develop future directions for Precambrian geoscience for the decade to come. The symposium continues the series of highly successful IAS meetings presented every decade by Geoconferences (WA). We invite academic, government and industry geoscientists involved in Precambrian geoscience to attend the 6th International Archean Symposium, which will be held from 2023 at The Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle (Walyalup), Perth, Australia.

6ias Workshops

  • Archean Fault Rocks: 23 – 24 July 2023
  • 3D Modelling and Loop: 22 – 23 July 2023
  • Archean-Proterozoic boundary core workshop: 25 July 2023

Target 2023

Target 2023: Targeting for a New Era of Discovery

28 July 2023 - Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle WA

After the great success of Target 2017, Geoconferences is organising Target 2023 to showcase innovations developed to aid the discovery of new tier-one deposits and broaden the exploration search space under cover. Target 2023 will focus on all aspects of mineral exploration and provide a unique opportunity to workshop solutions to the mineral industry challenges that lie ahead.

We expect more than 250 attendees from both the Australian and international mineral exploration community, including executives, professionals, researchers and university students. The technical program will consist of a plenary format and multiple poster sessions, impacting multi-commodity exploration from the regional greenfield scale through to camp scale. The program will emphasise: (i) key research outcomes that impact our understanding of Mineral Systems and the derived exploration strategies; (ii) data integration, interpretation and key exploration targeting inputs; and, (iii) improved targeting strategies and methodologies.

We look forward to welcoming you to Target 2023 and together shaping tomorrow’s exploration strategies for the future sustainability of our industry.
