Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the 56th Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals Annual Meeting will be held virtually.
Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members and attendees is paramount, and serves as the reason for our decision. Put simply, altering the platform of this meeting is the right thing to do during this historic time. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and unwavering commitment to FGIM.
We have shifted to a multi-day Virtual ZOOM meeting. The first day is Wednesday September 30th, with 3 presentations. The next is Saturday, October 10th, with at least 3 presentations. Q&A will follow at the end of the sessions.
