30th Anniversary Reunion of the Key Centre / Centre for Global Metallogeny

Dec 19, 2018

Thirty years ago, Professor David Groves founded the Key Centre for Teaching and Research in Strategic Mineral Deposits in the Department of Geology at the University of Western Australia (UWA). The ‘Centre’ as it was better known, was the first of its kind in Australia. It operated until 2004 when succeeded by the Centre for Global Metallogeny (CGM). Over the weekend of 17th-18th November 2018, a 30-year reunion celebration of students and staff from the original Key Centre and successor CGM was held.

First of all many thanks to those who could make it to our 30th Key Centre Reunion party which we believe was a great success. It was wonderful to see so many friends we had not seen during the past years. For all those who have missed the special celebration we have put together a folder with photos taken from the Friday evening session at Steves, the Saturday afternoon celebration at the Centre for Exploration Targeting at UWA, the Saturday evening dinner at JoJo’s and the Sunday morning BBQ at the Sunset heritage precinct. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cqyrvdoeobgxelc/AAAY07yTW8m0TsjRPebQFNQ0a?dl=0

We have discussed about a follow up reunion and decided that in 5 years’ time we’ll get together again. Meanwhile if you have a change in location or email address please let us know. We still have, unfortunately, several people from whom we do not have a current email address. In the case you know somebody who did not get an invite please forward the address so that, over time, we can get everybody’s contact details.

Lastly, those of you who have shown interest in becoming an individual member of the Centre for Exploration Targeting during the reunion please visit the CET website in the ‘become a member’ tab under the ‘Who Are We’ banner (www.cet.edu.au/who-we-are/become-a-member)  It would be wonderful to welcome as many as possible alumni to our current Centre.

Have a wonderful Christmas season and good start into the year 2019…….

Best wishes, Steffen and Linda
