“Socializing Rocks”

postermelogooo0000

Our forthcoming event will be held during the 13th Student Week of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the 1st Thessaloniki Science Festival.

We invite you to explore the magic and wonderful world of geology. Begin your fascinating journey through our interactive exhibition which includes a “geological trip” along the Egnatia Highway in N. Greece, and gaze at the scenery in a different way: the rocks’ way! Watch over the trip of a rock sample from the moment that is picked by a geologist in the field until it becomes part of a scientific paper, and act as a geologist by yourself. A great time is awaiting you to reveal the geological secrets of Galerius palace, the Byzantine churches and the Walls of Thessaloniki. Discover the geological side of our daily life, totally unknown until now!

A.U.Th S.E.G Student Chapter second meeting report

The 2nd official meeting of the AUTh SEG Student Chapter was held at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) on 12th December 2014, as part of the effort of the Student Chapter to promote Economic Geology and the interaction between  academia and industry.

Four very interesting, different and of various sub-disciplines topics were elaborated in this event. Ourania Toumanidou, MSc student at AUTh, presented the results of her diploma thesis “Formation conditions of hypogene caves in N. Greece through the study of fluid inclusions” (Fig. 1). Afetwards, Efi Petika, MSc student as well, discussed  the results of her diploma thesis about “Study of the tourmaline composition in pegmatite veins in Gerakini, Chalkidiki” (Fig. 2). Finally at this first part of the Thessaloniki event, Janja Mihajlovic, MSc student as well, presented her research done during her diploma thesis concerning the “Mineralogical, petrographic and geochemical study of the silicified sediments related with the ophiolite complex at Triadi of Thessaloniki, N. Greece” (Fig. 3).

During the second part of the meeting Mr. Theodore Veligrakis, exploration geologist in Hellas Gold S.A., shared his experience on the “Exploration methods for Au-rich ore deposits” and classified the various techniques according to the ore mineralization types. He also presented a case study about the new discovered carbonate replacement ore deposit related with an epithermal system at Perama South in Thrace, N. Greece (Fig.4). The event ended with the members of the SEG Student Chapter studying the cores of the exploration suite from Perama South, brought especially for this event by Mr. Veligrakis (Fig. 6).

It is worth noting that the event wouldn’t be so perfectly organized without the precious contribution of Dr. Thomas Sant, Exploration Manager of Eldorado Gold in Athens, Greece, who is highly appreciated.
