Sn-W-Critical Metals & Associated Magmatic Systems

A geological conference with a session in honour of Dr Roger Taylor

24-28 June 2019


The conference was held in the historic Herberton tin field in northeastern Australia. The program included a session in honour of former EGRU Director and author of The Geology of Tin Deposits, Dr Roger Taylor, in recognition of his contribution to the understanding of Sn magmatic systems in Australia, and globally.

The conference program addressed advances and breakthroughs in understanding the setting, genesis and characteristics of magmatic systems related to Sn-W-Critical Metal mineralisation, including Rare Metal Pegmatites.
