Regional minerogeny of placers and weathered rocks (PWR). New genetic and economic types of PWR deposits. Mineralogy and geochemistry. Prospecting and exploration. New analytic approaches. Mining, benefication and economic evaluation. Marketing. Ecological aspects of development. Others.

Topics to be proposed for discussion:
1. Placers and weathered rock mineral deposits (PWR) of activated platforms and fold belts.
2. Epochs of placer and crust of weathering formation; their evolution through the Earth's history.
3. Large and super-large PWR mineral deposits.
4. Artificial recycling mineral deposits: assessment and development.
5. Periglacial alluvial units and related mineral deposits.
6. Complex assessment and development of PWR mineral deposits.
7. New technologies of prospecting, exploration, mining and benefication of PWR mineral deposits.
8. Ecological aspects related to development of PWR mineral deposits.
9. Information technologies in study of PWR mineral deposits.

Short reference: The Symposium will take place in the Urals region famous by gold, PGM, diamond, rare metal placers and weathered rock deposits. The Urals is the oldest mining region of Russia, known from the beginning of the XVIII century. Some field excursions over the Kama River valley, with visiting gold and diamond mines and famous Kungur icy cave, and Workshop of the IGCP «Global Correlation of the Late Cenozoic Fluvial Deposits» are planed.
