Introductory and Historical Remarks

CIM Bulletin, 1971

J. A. HANSULD, (Session Chairman), Regional Manager, Amax Exploration, Inc., Toronto, Ontario

THIS SESSION marks something of a milestone in that it is, as far as I know, the first session at a CIM Annual Meeting devoted entirely to exploration geochemistry. This is an indication of the general acceptance and widespread recognition by industry of geochemistry in mineral exploration. As a first, I hope it proves sufficiently successful and interesting that geochemical exploration sessions will become a routine part of future CIM annual meetings.
