Porphyry Systems of Northern Chile: Antofagasta to Calama
Date: December 1-7, 2018
Location: Antofagasta, Chile
Early Registration Deadline: November 1, 2018
This field course is offered by the SEG Education and Training Committee, and emphasizes the alteration-mineralization mineralogy and geochemistry of hydrothermal systems characterizing northern Chile from Copiapó to Antofagasta. Core reviews and mine visits will comprise porphyry Cu-Mo, Cu-Au skarn-manto-vein, high-sulfidation Au-Ag-(Cu) epithermal, and Chilean “manto-type” Cu-Ag systems, with visits complemented by evening “take-away” discussion sessions. Use of activity diagrams to explain the alteration and mineralization assemblages will help participants understand the geochemistry of hydrothermal systems and their vagaries.

Use of Agglomeration by Extrusion
Presented by Mac Steele, Sales Manager,
Don’t miss this interesting webinar!
“Case Studies in the Use of Agglomeration by Extrusion in the Steel Industry”
Recovery and recycling of iron-containing byproducts has long been a topic of interest in the steel industry. In many cases the byproducts are in the form of fines or sludges, making direct use in metallurgical vessels challenging.
These materials are used in:
This webinar will review case studies where extrusion is used to effectively and efficiently agglomerate byproduct materials into a valuable, usable product.
About the speaker: Mac Steele is the Sales Manager at J.C. Steele & Sons. He holds an MBA from Wake Forest University and is involved with stiff extrusion agglomeration projects around the world.
