Hi all


We would like to draw your attention to the upcoming Geological Society of Australia Specialist Group in Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Petrology biannual conference on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, from 8th to 13th November, 2009.

The conference will cover three main themes:

--New evidence and methods to illuminate the Earths secular evolution;

--Unique Australia, how and why?;

--Cutting edge techniques: description and application.

Field excursions to superb localities of rocks from the Delamerian (Cambrian) Orogeny (plus local wineries) are integrated with the conference program


More details are available from the conference website: http://sggmp.gsa.org.au/KI09/index.html


Apologies for cross-postings!


Thanks and regards,

John Foden, Katy Evans, Chris Clark and Nick Timms
