To be held in University College Dublin, 4th – 7th January
The meeting will be held in the new O’Brien Centre for Science on the main Belfield campus, located about 6 km southeast of Dublin city centre.
As a result of recently released major state funding in both Ireland and the UK for minerals research, this meeting should prove to be a great opportunity for new researchers to make contacts. Although many parts of the mineral exploration industry are going through a cyclical lull in activity, research starting now should inform exploration when demand for minerals recovers. So apart from presenting the results of recent research, we have much to discuss informally about the future.
