Andean Porphyries 2017
Porter GeoConsultancy has designed a geological tour to a selection of the most significant porphyry Cu-Mo, Cu-Mo-Zn, Cu-Au and Au systems and provinces, from Jurassic to Pliocene in age and from Chile to Colombia, including 'classic' porphyry, porphyry-skarn, porphyry-breccia and porphyry-epithermal deposits, and supergene derivatives. Participants may take any 3 or more days, up to the full tour.

Registration of Interest

Registration for this tour has now closed and numbers reviewed. The tour will proceed, but will only include the four deposits in the Central Andes of Chile, namely   • Andina,   • Collahuasi,   • Chuquicamata   and   • Antucoya.

There was considerable interest in the tour, but for a variety of reasons, we are unable to proceed with the remainder of the tour. Consideration will be given to rescheduling those parts of the program in Peru, Ecuador and Colombia to May-June 2018 as Part 2 of Andean Porphyries 2017-18 if the mines/projects involved (or alternatives) agree when asked.
