PACRIM Congress 2008

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2008

PACRIM has become the premier AusIMM geological conference on the Pacific Rim, bringing together the most recent advances in fundamental academic research, regional surveys by government agencies and the industry’s latest discoveries to showcase the importance of the Pacific Rim for global mineral wealth.

The PACRIM 2008 Congress volume will appeal to any geologist, geophysicist, or geochemist exploring in the Pacific Rim or interested in mineralisation processes in active tectonic margins.

The proceedings cover the areas of the West Pacific and South-East Asia, the Andean Region and Central America provided presenting the state-of-the-art in ore deposits research in these regions.
