PERC seminar & EuroWorkshop: Porphyry Deposits in Serbia

About the event

The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) and the Serbian Geological Society (SGD) will co-organise a PERC seminar on 20 May 2020 and a EuroWorkshop on “Porphyry Deposits in Serbia” on 22 May 2020 in Bor, Serbia. An optional fieldtrip “Through Timok Magmatic Complex”, the biggest magmatic complex in Serbia located on the southern Rim of the Carpathian arch, home to many porphyry deposits, will be organised on 21 May 2020.

The 79th EFG Council meeting will be held subsequently on 23 and 24 May 2020 (for EFG delegates only).



As the world, as well as industry, face constant changes, geology needs to follow and tune in with these changes. Raw materials are one of the top priorities for today’s geology, therefore it is necessary to be well acquainted with the process of genesis, exploration methods, and mining and production techniques. Securing a sustainable supply of raw materials is a key priority in the world of today. Raw materials are becoming more and more important to any economy which wishes to grow and stay competitive. Jobs in many branches of industry are dependent on a sustainable supply of raw materials, especially when it comes to the development of modern environmentally friendly technologies.




The objectives of the EFG endorsed PERC seminar are to provide an overview of best practices in assessment and reporting in compliance with reporting codes and standards which are based on the CRIRSCO International Template with specific reference to the PERC Reporting Standard. The course will include an overview of the history of reporting codes, an introduction to the PERC Reporting Standard (definition, usage), application of the standards, codes and guidelines – projects, sampling, interpretation and estimation and planning and decision making.

The aim of the EuroWorkshop is to provide insights into how the porphyry deposits are formed, metallogeny and current understanding of the porphyry deposits and examples of exploration and mining procedures. It will also provide insights into the geology of Eastern Serbia which is a part of the wider Tethyan belt, important for bearing deposits of different mineral resources.
