XIV ECROFI

EUROPEAN CURRENT RESEARCH ON FLUID INCLUSIONS

Nancy, France

July 1-4, 1997

Second circular

Venue and Date

The XIV European Current Research on Fluid Inclusions will be held in Nancy, France from July 1 to 4, 1997. The meeting will take place at the School of Mines, Parc de Saurupt, 54000 Nancy.

The School of Mines is located near the city center, the railway station, hotels and bus facilities.

Purpose

The ECROFI meetings are traditionally the occasion to gather together the scientific community working on geological fluids as fluid inclusions. The XIV th meeting will in addition favour exchanges with other fields of geological sciences, especially those dealing with water-rock interaction in the crust, and mass transfer related to the prospection of energetic and raw materials, especially sedimentary basins and oil concentrations, geothermal energy, and environment.

The symposium will be divided into five main scientific sessions :

It is also the intention of this meeting to actively bring the participation of industry in order to apprise the relevant industries of recent progresses in basic research, and to acquaint scientists and engineers with the current research needs of industry.

Abstracts

A two-page abstract is requested from authors for oral or poster presentation and should be received by March 1st, 1997.

Abstract should be printed in camera ready form. The abstracts should be typed, single spaced, on plain white paper using Times 12 font, left and right justified, on two A4 pages, 21 X 29.7 with 2.5 cm margins.

ALPINE FISSURE MINERALS

XIV ECROFI

Field excursion in the Mont-Blanc massif

and in the Dauphiné region

July 1997, 5-8

organized in cooperation with

the Chamonix Mineralogical Club

and mineralogists from the Dauphiné region.

From July 5 to 8, a field excursion is planned to the famous sites of alpine minerals in the Mont-Blanc massif and the Dauphiné (Bourg d'Oisans) region.

You will see fissures, veins, alterations at their contact and the geological context of fissure formation*. You will see outstanding collections of crystals belonging to crystal searchers who will show you and explain their findings.

Landscapes in the Mont-Blanc area are awesome. You will take the Aiguille du Midi (3842 m) cable-car and will have to walk on glaciers with crampons (with official mountain guides). Note that you do not need being a climber. The effort will not be very strenuous, but beware that you will have to spend a full day at the altitude of 3400 m. Usually, in July, weather is good.

Alpine fissures in the field, as well as outstanding mineral collections in two museums (Grenoble and Bourg d'Oisans) will also be seen in the Dauphiné region.

Schedule

Saturday July 5 : Bus travel to Chamonix

evening : # presentation of alpine fissures (parageneses, fluid inclusions and formation mechanisms),

# presentation of mineral collections and the search for minerals in Mont-Blanc Massif by the Chamonix Mineralogical Club.

Sunday July 6 :

Field trip to the Aiguille du Midi (3842 m) and Pointe Helbronner (3462 m), close to the Mont-Blanc summit, with a cable-car. Observation of alpine fissures on the flancs of Grand Flambeau and Aiguilles Marbrées (granite peaks in the Vallée Blanche).

Monday July 7 :

morning : travel to Grenoble and visit of the Museum (outstanding collection of Dauphiné minerals).

afternoon : trip to Bourg d'Oisans. Observation of alpine fissures in the field. Visit of the Bourg d'Oisans Museum.

Tuesday July 8 :

morning : alpine fissures in the Bourg d'Oisans region.

afternoon : bus travel back to Nancy with a stop around 4 pm at Lyon station to catch TGV for Paris.

Price : 2500F/pers. (all included).

The excursion is limited to 30 participants, selected on the rule: first registered (and paid), first served.

Accomodation in 2 stars Hotels (double beds rooms).

Single room possible on request (extra charge).

* You will not see nice crystals in their fissures, because they are usually extracted as soon as discovered, and nowadays they are found usually in places where only good climbers can go.
