Regional Metallogenic to Local Controls on Circum-Pacific Gold and Copper Deposits is a short course to be presented prior to PACRIM 2015 (Workshop W2). This one-day workshop will be held at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong, China on the 17th of March, 2015. The course will be of particular interest to geoscientists seeking to broaden their understanding of ore-forming processes and who wish to explore for gold and copper deposits in the circum-Pacific region.
The workshop will consist of two parts. The first, presented by Steve Garwin, is titled Tectonic and Structural Controls to Gold and Copper Mineralization in the Circum-Pacific Region. This presentation will consist of three main topics:
- Tectonic and regional structural controls for gold and copper mineralization in the Southeast Asia – Western Pacific and Peruvian Andes
- Examples of district- and deposit-scale controls to porphyry and epithermal deposits in Indonesia, Japan and Peru
- Controls to Carlin-type deposits in northern Nevada, USA and Guizhou Province, China.
The second part of the course, presented by Craig Hart, is titled Intrusion-related Gold Metallogeny. This presentation will consist of three main topics:
- Intrusion-related gold systems and classifications, with an emphasis on Alaska and the Yukon
- Redox controls on intrusion-related metallogeny
- Controlling features of mineralizing intrusions.
Independent Consultant; Adjunct Research Fellow, CET, University of Western Australia, Australia
Steve has 25 years of experience as an exploration geologist in SE Asia, China, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Australia, the western USA, British Columbia, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador and Chile. He worked with Newmont Mining for ten years, including two years as Chief Geologist in Nevada. Steve is one of the leading authorities on epithermal, porphyry and Carlin-style mineralization in the circum-Pacific region, particularly SE Asia. He has been an adjunct research fellow at the Centre for Exploration Targeting at the University of Western Australia since 2001.

Craig is the Director of MDRU, the Mineral Deposit, Research Unit at the University of British Columbia. His experience includes regional geological mapping, mineral deposit and regional, metallogenic studies, plutonic systems, geochronology, and exploration, targeting orogenic belts around the word. He is a major contributor, to the development of intrusion-related gold models, is dedicated to, graduate student research and training, and a recipient of the SEG Distinguished Lecturer (2011).
The early bird registration for the PACRIM 2015 Congress closes on the 31st of January. The three day program will present over 85 technical abstracts plus an additional 7 keynote presentations from renowned international speakers.
