About the conference
An invaluable forum for the professional development of geoscientists, the conference is focused on discovery case histories of the world’s most recent gold mines or soon-to-be mines. A programme of sixteen 45 minute papers is presented over two days, each addressing the where-why-and-how of the discovery process leading to the world’s more important gold deposits. A publication of proceedings is available for each event.
The continued success and popularity of the conference proves the motivational nature of discovery case histories for geologists from all levels of the gold exploration and production business. Consequently it attracts strong attendance of delegates from around the globe and the sponsorship and support of major international gold producers.
