Mineral Symposium 2017
Saturday, March 25, 2017
9 AM – 5 PM*
At the Tellus Mineral Symposium 2017, you’ll learn how hydrothermal mineralization is responsible for creating hundreds of different minerals – from facetable amethysts, to stunning calcite and fluorite specimens, to industrial minerals such as copper, galena, and barite.
Join experts in the field at the Tellus Mineral Symposium 2017 to learn about these fascinating deposits that are not only found on Earth but as you will learn at the symposium, have also been found on Mars! This mineral symposium requires pre-registration. In addition to the presentations, registration includes breakfast and lunch, museum admission and discounted registration to the Sunday field trip.
*NEW THIS YEAR* Network and share ideas at the new poster session. Posters by students, professional geologists, and local rock-hounds will touch on all aspects of geology! If you are interested in presenting a poster see below to find out more. Deadline for applications is Tuesday, February 14, 2017.
This is a scientific mineral symposium. Geologic background and general mineral knowledge is recommended to increase comprehension.
