Fermor Meeting 2017: Factory Earth

25 Sep 2017 - 27 Sep 2017

The next Fermor meeting will be held at The Geological Society on 25-27th September 2017.

It is more than 10-years since the last detailed look at the role that volcanic and magmatic processes play in the role of ore deposits formation. The topic is still current and is ready for a wide-ranging reassessment. The meeting will address the fundamental controls on metal transport and deposition in magmatic systems and address questions such as:

  • What role do sulfide melts play in metal transport?
  • What are the key components of fertile magmas and how can they be identified?
  • What role do volatiles and semi-metals play in transporting and depositing metals?
  • How are ore metals concentrated during magmatic differentiation and transferred to the hydrothermal environment?
