New Geoscience: Expanding Exploration Space

West Convention Centre / Full Conference Pass
Speaker(s): Maurice Colpron David Moynihan Nicolas Pinet Gayle Febbo Robert G. Lee Dejan Milidragovic Alexei Rukhlov Colin Dunn
Chair(s): Adrian Hickin, and Luke Ootes, BC Geological Survey
Sponsor(s): OceanaGold Corporation

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.



Monday, Jan 22 (1:30 pm - 4:30 pm)
