Critical Minerals Forum: Americas - The role of geological survey organizations to advance critical mineral research

 Registration is closed for this event

New critical mineral deposits are required to secure the supply of natural resources that are used in today’s advanced technologies. The discovery and sustainable development of these new deposits represents a global challenge. Governments and international geological survey organizations are responding by improved multinational cooperation, data sharing, and through investments in geoscientific research. This Critical Minerals Forum brings together representatives from multiple geological surveys organizations to provide an update on the latest geoscience results and to discuss future critical mineral research.

Presentations will focus on advanced mineral system models that are applicable to critical minerals and new methods for modelling mineral potential in buried, remote, and/or other challenging mineral exploration settings. Both of these research themes are included within the new Critical Mineral Mapping Initiative that is being conducted between the Geological Survey of Canada, Geoscience Australia, and the United States Geological Survey. Global efforts to expand this collaboration, including the development of an online geochemical portal for critical mineral deposits, will be discussed as part of this special session and is open to further contributions, research, and analysis.

The Critical Minerals Forum will be hosted as a set of three regional sessions (Americas, Europe and Africa, and Asia and Oceania). Each regional forum will feature pre-recorded lectures from science policy experts and geoscientists and a live plenary and moderated discussion session with attendees. All pre-recorded presentations will be made available online the Monday prior to the live plenary and discussion sessions, and aired prior to the live sessions.
