55th Forum

Dear FGIMers – We need your help!  

We are writing to get the word out to geological surveys and the industrial minerals community to host our 55th Forum meeting in 2019!

The Forum focuses on new advances in industrial minerals geology, mining, processing, regulation and reclamation through presentations and field trips. The forum meetings are not just about the exchange of information across a diversified group but to help facilitate professional contacts too. Attendees include leading industry geologists, professionals and interested stakeholders in industrial minerals.

We have had recent success co-hosting with other meetings and implore you to help us find a host for the 55th Forum Meeting.

Please contact us with information on who would host the 2019 55th Forum meeting by emailing geologyofindustrialminerals@gmail.com or comment here on the website at FGIMinc.com.

We look forward to seeing you at the next forum meeting!

Sincerely,

FGIM Inc.

  1. The annual GSA mtg is being held in Phoenix this year. If there is interest we could propose a technical session on industrial minerals (Greta Orris and I could serve as co-hosts). Deadline for proposals to GSA is Feb. 20 so an interest needs to be arrived at quickly. Greta and I could make that proposal. Monday is a federal holiday so there are only 3 or 4 days to decide and get back to us.
    GSA registration fees would be higher than a normal forum fee. There is a fee for abstracts (but they would be published). These fee numbers are probably online or will be as the mtg approaches.

  2. If the FGIM would like a more international-themed event, try looking at immediately before or after the AusIMM Lithium 2019 conference held in Perth in early July. Obvious overlaps and (everyone’s favorite word) synergies! I’m not sure the last time it was held in Australasia but I can imagine some strong interest. Additionally, there’s some great field trip opportunities when the weather’s tends to be a bit more tolerable.

    1. Obviously hasn’t been to a Forum or is acquainted with who attends those and can afford going to Australia.
