IMA 2014 proudly attended and exhibited at the 24th meeting of the Colloquium of African Geology (CAG24) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (8-14 January 2013). The colloquium is a biannual meeting organised under the auspices of the Geological Society of Africa (GSAf) with CAG24 being attended by approximately 500 delegates from Africa and abroad representing 60 different countries from all continents.Read more...
The Organising Committee of IMA2014 would like to invite you to attend the 21st General Meeting of the International Mineralogical Association to be held from 1 to 5 September 2014 at the Sandton Convention centre in the Gauteng province of South Africa.
As a country with a large mining and mineralogical industry, as well as strong mineralogical, geological and geochemical research initiatives, South Africa is highly appropriate to host this meeting. Most of the mines and mineral occurrences are close to good infrastructure and easily accessible. Other easily accessible southern African countries also boast some outstanding geology and mineral fields.
The content of the technical sessions will reflect all the traditionally most important topics of our science as well as other, locally and internationally relevant topics. A number of sessions have already been proposed. Please visit the Session Proposals page. Proposals may still be submitted.
During the meeting we aim to supplement the international contributions with a showcase of South African examples of excellent research in the field of mineralogy, whilst simultaneously providing South African scientists with exposure to cutting edge research from the rest of the world. It would also be a wonderful, and affordable, opportunity to expose young scientists and students from southern Africa to both the local as well as the international mineralogical environment.
A variety of field trips, varying in duration from 1 day to several days are on offer. For more information, please visit the Field Trips page.
Some companies have already booked their booths for the trade show in which suppliers will be able to display and advertise their products or services for this event. Please visit our Exhibition page for more information.
We believe that South Africa, through the Mineralogical Association of South Africa, is in an ideal position to organize and host an outstanding meeting in 2014.
We are looking forward to seeing you in South Africa in 2014!
Information will be posted onto this website as it becomes available.
Please contact the Conference Secretariat for more information.

Founded in 1958 to promote and further international cooperation in the mineralogical sciences, the International Mineralogical Association can point to more than 50 years of a rich and varied history. In keeping with its task of serving the international community of students and scientists working in the fields of the mineralogical sciences, IMA holds General Meetings with the explicit intent to involve colleagues from all parts of the world. After the most recent meetings in Pisa 1994, Toronto 1998, Edinburgh 2002, Kobe 2006, and Budapest 2010, this will be the very first time that a General...
The International Mineralogical Association will hold its 21st General Meeting in 2014 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg from 31 August to 5 September, 2014. The meeting will be organised by the Mineralogical Association of South Africa. After the last meetings in Pisa 1994, Montreal 1998, Edinburgh 2002, Kobe 2006, and Budapest 2010 this will be the first time that a General Meeting of IMA will take place in the Republic of South Africa, a country with a long-standing and well-established tradition in the Mineralogical Sciences, especially in Applied and Economic Mineralogy.
