GSA 2016 - Live Report day 1

Last Updated: 26th Sep 2016

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.

I'm back in Denver for the Geological Society of America's major annual conference. I'll be reporting on the mineralogically-related presentations here. Right now I'm waiting for the first presentation on Precambrian Evolution and Mineral resources of the Mid-continent rift. And waiting here with me is regular Paul Brandes.

The event guide. This place is big.

I'll show some of the sessions on today and drop into a few.

Alkaline rocks

Presentation on new geochronologica constraints on the formation and hydrothermal enrichment of the Bokan mountain peralkaline complex

Dikes crossing the aegirie granite boundary

Dotson zone dike appearance

Geochronology sample locations.


Next presentation
