The Barcelona Student Chapter announces with great sadness the passing of our Honorific Advisor Antonio Arribas, at age 95, on the 27th of March, 2018.

Antonio Arribas obtained the degree of Natural Science in 1948 and afterwards he graduated in Economic Geology in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He was the founder of the Crystallography, Mineralogy and Ore Deposits department of the University of Salamanca in 1965, the first official Ore Deposits department ever settled in the Iberian Peninsula. He was one of the fathers of Ore Deposit research in the Iberian Peninsula and other territories such as the Western Sahara.

We would like to express our condolences to the relatives.
