Realizing the increasing importance of copper in a sustainable future, CIM is presenting a series of discussions on porphyry deposits — a major source of the green metal in Canada.

Moderated by Libby Sharman, Principal Global Geoscientist, Metals Exploration – Minerals Americas, BHP, topics include a look back on the last 25 years and the potential of the next 25 years of these deposits; a review of porphyry deposits in British Columbia, the Yukon and Alaska; and a summary of the Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell camp, one of the most significant porphyry districts defined in recent exploration history.

These talks will be of interest to geologists, explorers, miners, and anyone wanting to learn more about this core part of Canada’s mining landscape.

The event also serves as the launch of CIM Special Volume 57 – Porphyry Deposits of the Northwestern Cordillera of North America: A 25-Year Update.

The webinar takes place on September 22, 1-3 pm EDT. Complimentary registration is here.
