Critical and precious metal deposits: theory, experiment and nature – a symposium to recognize the work of A.E. Williams-Jones – SY04

Convenors:
Iain Samson (University of Windsor)
Robert Linnen (University of Western Ontario)
Stefano Salvi (University of Toulouse)
Summary:
This symposium is being convened to recognize and celebrate the contributions of Dr. A.E. (Willy) Williams-Jones to economic geology and geochemistry. Willy’s research has had a significant impact on our understanding of a wide range of mineralizing processes and mineral deposit types. His contributions have been diverse, ranging from experimental, through theoretical, to field-based studies. We therefore invite presentations on the geochemistry of mineralizing processes, particularly those that integrate field, experimental or theoretical approaches to develop mineral deposit models.

Keynote speakers include:
Prof. Daniel Kontak (Laurentian University – Coupled hydrothermal dissolution-precipitation processes)
Dr. Olga Vasyukova (McGill University – The role of magmas at Strange Lake)
Dr. John Walshe (CSIRO – Late Archean Earth degassing processes)
Types of presentation: Talks (up to 16) and Posters
