Dear All,

I would like to draw your attention to the following three sessions at the RFG 2018 meeting in Vancouver, June 16-21. Abstract Submission deadline: January 15, 2018.  http://rfg2018.org/sitecore/content/RFG/2018/Technical-Program/Submit-an-abstract

Thank you,
Brandi

RFG 2018
Resources for Future Generations
Premier International Conference on Energy, Minerals, Water, The Earth

Theme-Energy: Nuclear Resources

EN13: Global Uranium Deposits: From Exploration to Remediation

Chair: Mostafa Fayek-Dept. Geological Sciences, Univ. Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, R3T2N2, Canada (Mostafa.Fayek at umanitoba.ca<mailto:Mostafa.Fayek at umanitoba.ca>)

Canada and its industries need to adopt a leadership position in the development of strategies for innovative and sustainable resource extraction. This is particularly important in an era where climate change awareness has resulted in a heightened focus on efficient recovery and lower environmental footprint. The goal of this session is to gather recent advances in uranium deposit exploration, uranium mineralogy and biogenic minerals, and the fate and transport of uranium in surface and near surface environments. Contributions on uranium deposit models, exploration techniques, uranium mine tailings, and the remediation of contaminated sites are strongly encouraged.


EN14: Southwest Athabasca Basin, Canada: The Largest Undeveloped Uranium Deposits in the World

Chair: Kevin Ansdell-Dept. Geological Sciences, Univ. of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK., S7N 5E2 (kevin.ansdell at usask.ca<mailto:kevin.ansdell at usask.ca>)

New discoveries of world class, high-grade uranium deposits in Precambrian rocks below the SW Athabasca Basin (Saskatchewan) have attracted significant attention. Contributions on the regional and deposit-scale features of this new camp, and studies on unconformity-related uranium systems in other parts of the basin and worldwide, are encouraged.


Theme-The Earth: Applied Earth Sciences

EA39: In Memory of Kurt Kyser: Snapshots of Studies to Emphasize the Application of Isotope Geochemistry and Mineralogy to Earth Processes

Chairs: Kevin Ansdell-Dept. Geological Sciences, Univ. of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK., S7N 5E2 (kevin.ansdell at usask.ca<mailto:kevin.ansdell at usask.ca>); Mostafa Fayek-Dept. Geological Sciences, Univ. Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, R3T2N2, Canada (Mostafa.Fayek at umanitoba.ca<mailto:Mostafa.Fayek at umanitoba.ca>)

In commemoration of the breadth of research led by Kurt Kyser, which focused on the application of isotope geochemistry and mineralogy to Earth systems, we would like to invite colleagues, and particularly former students and post-doctoral fellows, to submit an abstract on any aspect of research that was ignited by work under Kurt's mentorship.
