International Field Trip 2014 - NAMIBIA
Still additional industry participant spots available! Contact Irene del Real for more information.
This year's field trip will be to Namibia! Tentative dates are late April-mid May. Namibia is host to a wide variety of deposit types which produce commodities like copper, rare earth elements, uranium, gold, diamonds, lead, and zinc. Time will also be allotted for sightseeing around parks and seeing some of the world's largest meteorites and impact sites. More information to come as we develop a more final itinerary.
