The 49th Annual FGIM will be held in:
June 23-29, 2013
The 49th Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals (49th FGIM) will be hosted at the Jamaica Conference Centre, Downtown, Kingston.
The heartbeat of Jamaica, Kingston sits at the crossroads of the Caribbean, North and Latin America, and is the largest English-speaking city south of Florida. In 1872, the city became the capital of Jamaica and has since been the cultural, economic and social centre of the island. The city offers a comprehensive variety of attractions for visitors. Kingston is the centre of government.
Set against the backdrop of the 7,402-foot Blue Mountain Peak, Kingston, which is located on Jamaica’s south-eastern coast, is connected to the old buccaneer haunt of Port Royal by the Palisadoes which encompasses the city's international airport.
Field Trips will include visits to some of Jamaica’s most established mining and minerals development operations, and unique geological sites. The trips will highlight some of the island’s indigenous features, including karst formations, bauxite deposits and world class limestone deposits. Additionally, there will be special trips for guests at the forum. Click here to read more about the guest trips.
