General43rd Annual Rochester Mineralogical Symposium

13th Apr 2016 15:28 BSTElise Skalwold

Looking forward to seeing Mindat friends at the 43rd Annual Rochester Mineralogical Symposium which kicks off tomorrow. 168 delegates have registered so far for this 4 day gathering, a world-class, award-winning scientific event and always a great time! It's been a couple years since I last presented at the RMS; this year's speakers are really hard acts to follow:

Brad Wilson: "Collecting Adventures on Baffin Island"

Peter Burns: "The Societal Importance of Uranium Minerals and Mineral-inspired Materials"

Bob Lauf: "Mineralogy of Uranium and Thorium"

John Koivula: "Crystalline Showcases"

Jeff Scovil: "Whats New in Minerals"

Bob Martin: "Minerals and Mineralogists of France"

Elise Skalwold: "From Gemology to Mineral Physics and Back Again"

Ken Carlsen & Woody Thompson: "Minerals of the Belvidere Mountain Asbestos

Quarries, Lowell-Eden, Vermont"

Michael Bainbridge: TBA (but always entertaining)

And the technical session presentation of papers; abstracts later published in Rocks & Minerals magazine.

While the 43rd RMS was one of the best ever, the finale was nothing less than historic: Michael Bainbridge's overview of the upcoming book was terrific, not only in imagery and delivery, but because Bill Pinch was in the audiance for it!
