The New Geoscience Session (formerly Public Geoscience) will feature technical talks by government and university geoscientists.
New geoscience informs mineral exploration and can expand its footprint, underpinning a New Generation of Discovery. This session, Expanding Exploration Space, will communicate front-line geoscience initiatives that are helping expand the footprint of exploration across the northern Cordillera. Topics will cover deposit to regional scales, serving first-hand research on established and nascent deposits while engaging contemplation on new exploration environments.
