COPPER PORPHYRY DEPOSITS IN CHILE

COPPER PORPHYRY DEPOSITS & NEW DISCOVERIES REGARDING THEM, WITH REFERENCE ESPECIALLY TO RESEARCH INTO THE GEOSCIENCE OF THE CHILEAN DEPOSITS.

Dr Brian Tattitch (of USA, Washington) and Ed Bunker (Bristol University)

The talk will start with a fairly brief, but sufficient for those who do not know, introduction to the subject of Copper Porphyry Deposits, which are the biggest sources of mined copper in the world. This will be followed followed by some new, most engaging research discoveries from top research realms in their field of research.

Dr Brian Tattitch and Ed Bunker have both been working with Prof Jon Blundy in the last couple of years, Prof Blundy being recent past head of Earth Sciences School, Bristol University and a Fellow of the Royal Society.

The evening is planned to take a two part form with a break in the middle of the evening during which fragments from deposits will be able to be seen & handled (Do bring your own hand lens!) & a few helpful texts and papers as helpful background & engaging reading, will be there to be dipped into.”
