 Description:  This one-day short course will provide participants with an overview of current models for the enrichment of high-technology metals (REE, Nb, Ta, Li) in the context of experimental and theoretical data on the their geochemical behaviour in magmatic and hydrothermal environments. This will include ore formation in both peralkaline and peraluminous igneous environments.
