Date(s) - Tuesday, 18/10/2022 - Thursday, 20/10/2022
18th to 20th October 2022
The symposium will be in the raked lecture theatre at the Western Mining Centre (WMC) at Curtin University School of Mines, MacDonald Street, Kalgoorlie. For the symposium we will be using the adjacent Graduates Hall for social functions, trade displays and lunches.
Short courses will be held in Perth (Pagoda Resort & Spa, Como, Perth) and Kalgoorlie (Hannans Club, 44 Brookman Street, Kalgoorlie).
The symposium, short courses and field trips are aimed at anyone with a graduate degree in geology interested in structure and ore deposits. Past meetings have attracted Company Directors, Senior Managers, Exploration and Mine Geologists, Academics and Students. We hold the meeting in Kalgoorlie with the specific aim of being accessible to local mine geologists in the early stage of their careers.

Like 2002 and 2012, the AIG will produce a symposium volume of extended abstracts (about four pages including at least one figure). This will be edited by Julian Vearncombe and papers may be reviewed by the organising committee. Importantly, abstracts should not be advertorials for research programmes or commercial products. For guidance please view the 2012 volume at https://www.aig.org.au/publication-shop/digital-aig-bulletin-no-56-extended-abstracts-structural-geology-and-resources-symposia-kalgoorlie-26-28-september-2012/
Authors are asked to submit Word and JPEG (or similar) files for the abstract volume no later than 1 April 2022. We can achieve final formatting for consistency but please make your abstract similar to the past volumes. Proofs will be sent to authors. A pdf version of the Abstracts Volume will be available by end August 2022. All registrations will receive a digital copy of the abstract volume.
All registrations will receive a digital copy of the abstract volume.
The session on Wednesday afternoon, 19th October, is talks suitable for undergraduate students of geology and mining. We invite students to attend, but note that this applies to full-time genuine students only (no part-time students who are otherwise employed).
Registration is required by email: email@example.com.
If students wish to attend the evening cultural event at the Hannan’s Club there is a charge of $40 and will have to be paid in advance.
The below social functions are included in registration fees.
Welcome Drinks at the Graduates Hall (adjacent to Western Mining Centre).
Visit with drinks and nibbles to Joe Lord core library, event sponsored by Geological Survey of Western Australia.
Kalgoorlie Cultural Event (pizza and beer) at the Hannans Club
Full refund less $70 or 10% of the registration fee – whichever is larger – will be allowed 30 days prior to the event. If refund is requested between 30 and 7 days before the event, only 50% of the total registration fee will be returned. No refund will be accommodated subsequently.
In case a delegate is unable to travel or the event is cancelled due to COVID-related government restrictions (including travel limitations from your home jurisdiction) and/or acts of nature, we will arrange a full refund of 100% of the registration fee if notice is given at least 14 days before the event. If the event is rescheduled/postponed because of such reason, registrants will have the option to either refund or use the registration fee for the rescheduled dates.
