GeoCosas already reported about it a while back. After my thesis plans have all been sunk by now due to financing issues and new opportunities are only available starting november the XIV Congreso Peruano de Geologia and XIII Congreso Latinoamericanode Geologia seems like the perfect choice to bring that extra time to some good use. I was long planing to visit friends in Lima, Peru, whom I haven't seen in more than 3 years. This sounds like a really good reason to go!
Largely a congress aimed at resource geologists this seems like paradise to go and see. They have juicy courses that I can hardly sit still when reading about like:
“Unconventional Zinc Deposits – Lessons to Learn from Supergene Metallogenesis” with G. Borg
“SEG Workshop Lead-Zinc deposits” with Richard Tosdale, David Leach, Lluís Fontboté y Larry Meinert
OK, these are just two of the courses that get me all excited about but there are plenty more of high interest! Of course there symposias and special lectures on Amazonian Geology or Earthquakes and Seismicity in South America, as well!
Also there will be a lot of field trips to some famous mines within Peru and South America.
I better begin saving up some money to afford the flight and fees! I wonder if anyone else from the Geoblogosphere will be attending it.
