August 2012: SGA-BCN student members in Bolivia

Three members of our Student Chapter (Belén Torres, David Artiaga and Lisard Torró) together with our advisor Joan Carles Melgarejo, have spent three weeks in Bolivia doing a comprehensive sampling of some of the main mines of the country. The sampled mines belong to the Pb-Ag-Zn and Sn metallogenetic belts into the Eastern Andes and Altiplano units. Huanuni, Viloco, San José-Itos, Llallagua, Tasna, Colquechaca world-class deposits are among the visited districts. You can see some pictures of their field work in the gallery. Belén Torres and David Artiaga are expected to do their Final Degree Project from this samplings. Our best wishes for these two colleagues!
