Geoscience Forum 2023

The AusIMM Tasmanian Branch, GSA, AIG and Mineral Resources Tasmania are pleased to bring you the 13th Geoscience Forum. The purpose of this forum is to gather geoscientists in one pleasant place to share their progress in exploration, mining and research. This event is for sharing geologically focused results and ideas, and for learning more about geology, in particular the geology of Tasmania.
