Concentration is typically gravity-driven in the presence of moving water whereby the dense minerals sink.

New Zealand’s placer resources include garnet, ironsand and gold.

This forum will explore some of the fundamental processes associated with the formation of these deposits with reference to New Zealand case studies. We will also explore some of the challenges with discovery, definition, and extraction. The forum will be chaired by Tony Christie and speakers will include Kerry Stanaway, Dave Craw, Tom Ritchie, and John Youngson.
