Drilling for Geology II, 26-28 July 2017, Brisbane – Expressions of Interest

Australian Institute of Geoscientists > Applied Geoscience > Drilling for Geology II, 26-28 July 2017, Brisbane – Expressions of Interest

AIG is pleased to host the second instalment of its very successful Drilling for Geology conference held in 2008.

Drilling for Geology II will again focus on the collection and analysis of geoscientific information from drilling. From grassroots exploration through to mining operations, drilling is the prime method used for geological data collection and is often the biggest single cost centre for exploration and mine geology budgets.   The conference will comprise two days of technical sessions with a concurrent exhibition. The third day will comprise a series of half-day and full-day professional development workshops.

Expressions of interest are invited for:

  • Presentations.  Abstracts of less than 300 words in English are now invited and must address the conference themes. Abstracts should be submitted to Mark Berry by 30 September 2016.  An extended abstracts volume will be published and provided to all delegates.
  • Sponsors.  There will be a wide range of options available to meet all sponsorship budgets.
  • Exhibitors.  There will be provision for up to 30 booths to be held in conjunction with the first two days of the conference.
  • Professional development workshops.  Day 3 of the conference is devoted to professional development. Organisations are invited to run half-day and/or full day workshops providing delegates with a choice of a wide range of drilling-related courses.
