Jointly organized by the student chapters of the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG) of UQAM, UQAC and Université Laval ─ INRS-ETE

Speakers: Jean Bédard (CGC-Q), Denis Gapais (Université de Rennes 1), Lyal Harris (INRS) et Simon Jowitt (Université du Nevada)

Date: November 18, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Room: 306-B

Regular rate: $350
Student rate: $75

Organized by the Quebec student chapters of the Society of Economic Geologist (SEG), this short course is for both students and professionals. It aims to introduce participants to the latest concepts related to large-scale tectonism and the different tectonic and crustal models proposed for the Archean. This short course will be given entirely in English.

This year, we are pleased to welcome four internationally renowned speakers: researchers Jean Bédard, Lyal Harris, Simon Jowitt and Denis Gapais. The course will consist of two parts, one on Archean tectonic models and a second on the magmatic evolution and development of Archean crust and the associated geodynamic context. Jean Bédard of the Geological Survey of Canada and Lyal Harris of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique – centre Eau Terre Environnement will present their recent work on an innovative geological model for the Archean and discuss possible implications for understanding early Earth evolution. The talk of Simon Jowitt, from the University of Nevada, will focus on mineralization related to the emplacement of Archean large igneous provinces. Finally, Denis Gapais from the University of Rennes 1 will address tectonism of large Archean complexes.
