Howard Street Robinson Medal/Mineral Deposits Division
Howard Street Robinson Lecturer (2013-14)
Dr. Jacob Hanley
The Howard Street Robinson Lecturer is chosen by the
Mineral Deposits Division and the Precambrian Division of
the GAC in alternate years. It is funded by the Robinson
Fund of the GAC that was established in 1977, following
the bequest to GAC from the estate of Howard Street
Robinson, a founding member of GAC. The bequest was
“for furtherance of scientific study of Precambrian Geology
and Metal Mining.”
Jacob Hanley is offering a choice of the following two lectures:
• The origin and role of volatiles in the formation of magmatic Ni-Cu-platinum-group element deposits: What have we learned from fluid and melt inclusions?
• Multiple stages of platinum-group element deposition in alkalic Cu-Au porphyry systems in the Canadian Cordillera, and links to mafic magmatism.
