Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm MST (UTC-7)
Please join us for the third installment of the SEG 2023 Base Metals Webinar Series, Nickel — Devil’s Metal in Demand, as we provide students and professionals alike with an open forum for interaction with industry and academic experts as they discuss the significance of nickel exploration and the increasingly important role that it will play in the evolving energy transition.
This webinar will contain a series of mini-lectures that will focus on a variety of relevant themes, such as investigating the latest regional and global nickel market trends, modern exploration highlights and frontiers, and significant advances coming from within academia. Following the lectures, a panel discussion will offer conversations on a wide range of key concepts and allow the panelists to bring their unique perspectives to the table.
“Global nickel resources, reserves, supply and demand; implications for the future of the nickel sector and the byproduct potential of nickel supply chains”
Simon Jowitt, University of Nevada, Reno
“Nickel discovery histories and future trends”
Rebecca Sproule, Rio Tinto
“Advances in research on magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE deposits and applications to exploration”
- Michael Lesher, Harquail School of Earth Sciences
The motivation for both this series and webinar is to provide the space for attendees to develop a better overall understanding of the full base metals value chain, including modern approaches to exploration methodology and the latest developments in academic thinking. Students and early career professionals are highly encouraged to join the discussion!
