The AusIMM held its first Distinguished Speaker Seminar in China on 23 March 2015, following the PACRIM conference in Hong Kong.
More than 100 AusIMM members and their guests attended the event.
Held at the China Minmetals Corporation offices in Beijing, the seminar was opened by AusIMM CEO Michael Catchpole MAusIMM. Mr Catchpole gave a presentation on the AusIMM, our services and the benefits and responsibilities of membership.
The Distinguished Speaker was Dr Larry Meinert who presented on Mineralisation in the Porphyry-Skarn Environment. Dr Meinert is Head of the Mineral Resources Program at the US Geological Survey and was keynote speaker at the PACRIM conference. He kindly extended his trip to also present in China.
The seminar concluded with the presentation of AusIMM Fellow certificates by Mr Catchpole and JORC certificates by Peter Stoker HonFAusIMM(CP) and was followed with a networking event.
The seminar was very successful and exceeded our expectations. We look forward to holding future events in China.
