 Invitation to the Second Conference on Geophysics for Mineral Exploration & Mining

"Following the success of the First EAGE Conference on Geophysics for Mineral Exploration and Mining in Barcelona, 2016, the Second Conference invites researchers from academia, industry, and government organizations to share the recent advances, trending topics and novel geophysical methods in mineral prospecting and mining.
Considering the complex challenges of modern-day exploration, the main focus of the Second Conference will be on discussing the key technical and scientific advances that will improve exploration success and lead to discovery and successful development of mineral deposits. We encourage contributions from all over the world, especially those with a European focus and application. Emphasis will be placed on emerging geophysical techniques for mineral exploration, novel interpretation schemes and challenging case studies.
The aim of the conference is to promote international cooperation on geophysical methods that lead to sustained mineral exploration and development."

Porto’s streets and houses are filled with history, magnificent monuments and interesting museums but also a thriving and cosmopolitan downtown area with a very intense nightlife, charming parks and gardens and traditional and gourmet restaurants.

Porto is known for its bridges that span the Rio Douro as well as its XIX century iron bridges, iron architecture, Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Neo-classical art and traditional Portuguese buildings and balconies. Across the Douro is the Ribeira in Gaia that houses the famous and unavoidable port wine cellars, taverns and restaurants.
