EIG to host ‘virtual’ conference in November

EIG virtual conference

Extractive Industry Geology Conferences hosting free-to-attend virtual conference on 3–4 November 2021

TO bridge the gap until the next ‘live’ EIG conference at the University of Exeter in July 2022, EIG is organizing a free-to-attend ‘virtual’ conference on the afternoon of 3 November and the morning of 4 November 2021. The event will attempt to recreate, as far as possible, the feeling of a normal EIG conference with an Auditorium, an Expo Hall, and numerous breakout areas for networking.

The event, which is being organized in conjunction with virtual conferencing specialists Virbela, will utilize the latest technology to provide a fully interactive experience that will allow delegates to attend a programme of selected presentations, spread over the two half-day sessions, with plenty of time for ‘live’ Q&A sessions following each presentation, as well as ample time for tea and coffee breaks.

An interesting and diverse programme of presentations has been put together by the EIG committee, with confirmed speakers and titles as follows:

  • ‘Geodiversity and Quarry Design in Carboniferous Limestone’, Alan Thompson, Cuesta Consulting, and Adrian Wilkinson, Quarry Design
  • ‘Recovering the lost gold of the developing world: Case study in Migori County, Kenya’, Clive Mitchell, BGS
  • ‘Stowe Hill Quarry – A Lesson in Karst HIA’, Deborah Thomas, Envireau Water
  • ‘Chemostratigraphy: A new tool for correlation and rock evaluation in the extractive industries’, Alexander Finlay, Chemostrat Ltd
  • ‘Investigating the palaeogeography and Early Middle Palaeolithic archaeology in the southern North Sea’, Nigel Griffiths, Hanson
  • ‘Needingworth Quarry – The Hydrology of Wetland Restoration’, Rebecca Haw, Envireau Water

In addition, delegates will be able to visit and interact with sponsors and exhibitors at the Expo Hall, where they can meet and chat with their peers around a range of professional trade stands, whilst avoiding any uncertainty or concern over large gatherings and social distancing.
