The 38th Annual New Mexico Mineral Symposium will be held November 11-12, 2017 (with optional field trips in the days prior) at the Macey Center on the New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology campus in Socorro, New Mexico.

This year's schedule includes a trip to the Bursum Mine (goethite locality), a social evening in the New Mexico Bureau of Geology Mineral Museum, the traditional (but informal) three-four nights of tailgating and social gatherings at the Comfort Inn & Suites and other locations, a silent auction and dinner, as well as the following speakers:

Sunday, Nov. 12:

Sadly, Nathalie and I won't be able to make it this year for the Symposium because of prior commitments here in Houston.
Next year however, Nathalie has promised a very informative presentation for the event.....

I'm sorry to hear that, I was looking forward to seeing you! Will catch you next year though!

As always, wish I could attend. A few talks listed are of interest to me, having attended NMT back in the day, and my interest in Southwest minerals. Hope the Symposium is well attended.
