Date & Time

18th to 20th October 2022


Venue

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).


Following the highly successful symposia Structural Geology and Resources in both 2002 and 2012, the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) will again be running a three-day symposium in Kalgoorlie. The Kalgoorlie symposium will be accompanied with field trips and short courses (in Perth and Kalgoorlie).

  • Symposium themes
  • Tectonic setting of mineralisation
  • Structural controls on mineralisation
  • New developments including data integration
  • 3D modelling
  • Data collection
  • Structure in resource evaluation
  • Case studies structural geology and resources

AIG symposium volume

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.
