Location: Institute of Geology and Mineralogy, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia


Contact: Evgeniy Naumov (

The conference is focused on the following topics:

  1. Nature, age, and duration of the formation of large igneous provinces (LIP) of Asia;
  2. Modeling of processes involved in the formation and development of mantle plumes, mantle-crust interaction and ore-magmatic systems;
  3. Petrologic-geochemical aspects of formation of local magmatic complexes within large igneous provinces of Asia;
  4. Metallogenic specialization of largest igneous provinces (LIP) and the role of mantle plumes in the formation of large and unique Cu-Ni-Pt, Ni-Co-As, porphyry Cu-Mo, Au-sulfide, Hg, Au-Hg and rare metal deposits of Asia;
  5. Correlation of magmatic and ore complexes of Asia, their main historic boundaries of formation, and distribution controls of large and unique deposits by mantle plumes of different age;
  6. Interaction of the largest magmatic events, natural disasters and global climate changes
