SHORT COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT:
(Society of Economic Geologists Short Course immediately
before the 1996 Geological Society of America Meeting
in Denver, CO)

APPLICATIONS OF MICROANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES TO
UNDERSTANDING MINERALIZING PROCESSES

Organizers: Michael A. McKibben and W. C. (Pat) Shanks III
Society of Economic Geologists

Dates: Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26-27 1996
(dinner and reception on Friday evening)

Venue: The Nature Place Resort, Florissant, CO 80816
(in the Rocky Mountains ~2 hours from Denver,
shuttle transportation available)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Nature Place is in an isolated location in the mountains
about 1 hr from Colorado Springs with a spectacular view of
Pikes Peak.  Their room rates are based on room + meals +
facility use (which includes: indoor pool, tennis, volleyball, etc.
hiking, xc skiing trails, planetarium, and giant walk-in plant
cell).  Accomodations are in studio apartments with loft and
stone fireplace.  It's an incredible place!


REGISTRATION FEES:
$425 professionals
$325 students

Fees includes registration, lodging (double occupancy), all meals
and social hours, coffee breaks, registration and course volume
(Reviews in Economic Geology Vol. 7).

Single rooms are available for an additional $80 ($40/night).

If you wish to bring a spouse/friend/significant-other, we can
book a double room. The additional cost will be $140 for room
and meals (assuming he/she is not attending the short course).

Registration for the short course does not cover anything
regarding GSA- like housing, meals, local transportation, GSA
registration- you have to arrange that separately if you want to
attend GSA. I suggest you take a look at the GSA website:
http://www.geosociety.org/meetings/96/index.htm
the GSA meeting runs M-Th, October 28 - 31.
