Conference Proceedings
Published in 2015

PACRIM 2015 was held 18–21 March, in Hong Kong, China. The conference focused on research, exploration and development of mineral deposits around the Pacific Rim. It attracted geologists, geophysicists and geochemists exploring in the Pacific Rim; people interested in the mineralisation processes of active tectonic margins; and those developing projects following discovery in these regions. The program included six keynotes and over 90 presentations, covering themes such as exploration techniques, mining investments, new project developments, mineralisation styles and processes, and case studies.

Note: the proceedings contains extended abstracts only.
