VANCOUVER, June 16 to 21, 2018



Strong on its vision to share scientific knowledge, IOS will be active at the first RFG conference on resources. Jointly organized by the Geological Association of Canada (GAC), the Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC, the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (CIM), the Canadian Federation of Earth Science (CFES), the International Union of Geological Science (IUGS), the Canadian Geological Foundation (CGF) and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), this world-class event aims at bridging all tenants of mineral resources: academics, industry and civil society.


More than 1000 talks will be presented at the event, and IOS has its share with 11 of them:


- Gold deportment in mill tailing. Jonathan Tremblay, Session Min54, Monday 11:15 am.
- Detrital Platinum-group minerals from till samples: Mineralogy, Evolution and their use as exploration tool: Philippe Pagé, Session Min38, Monday 11:15 am.
- Footprint recognition and prediction of orogenic gold deposit at regional scale: A comparative study between Bayesian logics (Hypercube) and WofE: Clément Dombrowski, Session Min4, Monday 11:45 am.
- ARTPhot: Automated routine for gold grain counting using a digital microscope and neural network: Alexandre Néron, Session Min55, Wednesday, 9:15 am.
- In-situ observation of metal speciation in soil with the use of real-time X-ray imaging: Réjean Girard, Session EA4, Wednesday 11:30 am.
- Automated and quantitative petrography: Applications of new advances in X-Ray mapping and image processing: Réjean Girard, Session Min53, Thursday 9:00 am.
- ARTMin: Automated SEM-based indicator minerals detection from heavy mineral concentrates using fully-deconvoluted EDS analysis. Jonathan Tremblay, Session Min53, Thursday 9:15 am.
- Gold grain counting at the micron scale: Reducing sample size for gold exploration in glaciated terrain. Alexandre Néron, Session Min53, Thursday 10:00 am.
- Advanced gold grains counting in glaciated terrain: The Goldcorp's Borden Gold case history. Réjean Girard, Session Min33, Thursday, 1:45 pm
- Solving of complex and dimmed geochemical fingerprints of mineral deposits across thick overburden with the use of Hypercube. Réjean Girard, Min47, Thursday, 14:00 pm.
- The titanomagnetite deposit of the Lac Doré Complex (Québec): Mineralogical features affecting the purity of vanadium-rich magnetite concentrates. Jean-Philippe Arguin. Poster: Sunday to Wednesday.


Resources for Future Generation will be held at the Vancouver Convention centre, June 16 to 21. See you there; we are in a mood to talk technological geology...


There are those who follow the rules... and those who define them!
