800+ Geologists at Ores and Orogenesis Conference

Registration topped 800 for the Arizona Geological Society's

Ores & Orogenesis

Circum-Pacific Tectonics, Geologic Evolution, and Ore Deposits

that kicks off tonight at Tucson's El Conquistador Resort. Some field trips started more than a week ago in Japan, the Yukon, and Mexico. More trips are scheduled after the technical program ends on Saturday, Sept 29. Details are at http://www.agssymposium.org/

The symposium is in honor of William (Bill) Dickinson, professor of geology at University of Arizona and tectonicist extraordinaire.

Attendees are coming from around the world, including many mineral explorationists and academics. I plan on blogging about the symposium, geologic talks, and mining news in the coming days.
