International conference

Ore potential of alkaline, kimberlite and carbonatite magmatism.

School Geochemistry of Alkaline rocks


Dear colleagues! We invite you to participate in the International conference Ore potential of alkaline, kimberlite and carbonatite magmatism as a part of the school Geochemistry of Alkaline rocks, which will take place 14-18 September, 2012 in Ukraine, Sudak.


The following themes are suggested:

        Genesis of alkaline magmatism: general veiw

        Potassium alkaline rocks, lampoites and kimberlites

        Geochemistry, petrology and ore potential of alkaline-carbonatitic series

        Geochemistry and petrology of mafic- and ultramafic rocks

        Geochemistry, petrology and ore potential of granitoids

        Mineralogy of alkaline rocks and carbonatites

        The experimental data for alkaline rocks petrogenesis



Registration forms and abstracts you can send to e-mail: Alkaline2011@gmail.com and alkaline2012@yandex.ru. The deadline for abstracts are prolonged by May, 25; also it is final term. Abstracts will be published in a special book and by way of e-print on the Conference web-site http://alkaline2012.web.ru/.

Isotopic signature of the Siberian flood basalts and alkaline magmatism of Polar Siberia

A close association between alkaline magmatism and continental flood basalts is observed worldwide. Nevertheless, the problem of a genetic link between the Siberian flood basalts (SFB) and the ultramafic-alkaline rocks of the Maimecha-Kotuy province in Polar Siberia is still being debated.
