Dec 11 Practical session - Dr Alan Boyle Mineral Deposit Geology Practical Session This session will look at the formation of volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) mineral deposits. There will be a short introductory talk followed by a resource estimation exercise (map-based activity) and an opportunity to use reflected-light microscopy to look at polished thin sections of a metamorphosed VMS deposit to investigate textures of pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and magnetite. If time and interest permits, some gold-bearing non-VMS polished sections will be available. (This session will be limited to 20 places. To book a place please contact Maggie Williams.) 2019 Jan 22 Distinguished visitor’s address Prof Andrew Chamberlain (Manchester) Caves Feb 5 Joint meeting NW Gp Geol Soc @ 7pm John Midgely BGS BGS Geoenergy project Feb 16 Herdman Symposium Feb 26 Dr Patrick Byrne (LJMU) Identification and quantification of the potential impacts of groundwater pollution at uranium mill sites in the USA.
