Geological Association of Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Section Abstracts: Spring Technical Meeting, February 22 and 23, 2021
The Annual Technical Meeting was held virtually on February 22 and 23, 2021 from various home offices, dens, and bedrooms across St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond.
This year the meeting kicked off on Monday with a Special Session to pay tribute to R. Frank Blackwood who passed away in the summer of 2020. Frank was a strong supporter of bedrock mapping, mineral exploration, and the mining industry in Newfoundland and Labrador which is reflected in the following abstracts. Tuesday featured a General Session with presentations on a wide range of geoscience topics.
As always, this meeting was brought to participants by volunteer efforts and would not have been possible without the time and energy of the executive and other members of the section such as Anne Westhues, Jared Butler, James Conliffe, Shawn Duquet, Sarah Hashmi, Zsuzsanna Magyarosi, Annie Parrell, and Karen Waterman. The organizers are also indebted to their sponsors, particularly the Geological Association of Canada, Department of Earth Sciences (Memorial University of Newfoundland), and the Geological Survey of Newfoundland and Labrador, Department of Energy, Industry, and Technology.
Although the abstracts are modified and edited as necessary for clarity and to conform to Atlantic Geology format and standards, the journal editors do not take responsibility for their content or quality.
