AIG Symposium: Structural Geology and Resources 2022


Date(s) - Tuesday, 27/09/2022 - Thursday, 29/09/2022
All Day




Date & Time

27th to 29th September 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 Graduate Hall for social functions, trade displays and lunches.

Kalgoorlie short courses will be at WMC centre, MacDonald Street or a nearby hotel within walking distance.

Some short courses, especially those with interests beyond hard-rock mining, will be held in Perth. Venue(s) to be announced nearer the event will be within ten kilometres of the Perth CBD.


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


Who should attend

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.

Call for sponsors

At this early stage we are seeking sponsors. Sponsors will have on-going exposure with name and logo on symposium materials, a trade booth, guaranteed lecture slot and two delegates. We are also offering Trade Exhibitors a trade booth and one delegate registration. We are pleased to talk to you about your detailed requirements including the bulk booking of delegates.
