2020 NMGS Fall Field Conference - POSTPONED Mount Taylor Area
September 23 - 26, 2020

Due to COVID-19 concerns, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Mount Taylor Area Field Conference to 2021.

The 2021 NMGS Fall Field Conference (date TBA) will visit the area around Mt. Taylor, a stratovolcano near Grants, New Mexico. The motivations for hosting a conference at Mt. Taylor are two-fold: 1) the completion of the Mt. Taylor geologic map and 2) the conclusion of “Energize New Mexico,” a five-year, NSF-funded program to support research in non-carbon emitting energy resources, including uranium resources. Researchers from the projects will lead or present during the conference. The Mt. Taylor area is rich in geologic history, including the relatively rapid creation of a complex volcanic mountain, the important uranium and coal deposits preserved in the shadows of Mt. Taylor and the resulting mining legacy, and the Jurassic and Cretaceous stratigraphy within and surrounding Mt. Taylor.

Fort Stanton Cave, New Mexico: Science Conference Socorro, NM
September 17 - 19, 2021

The primary goal of this conference is to gather together the many individuals who have been working on various scientific and related aspects of Fort Stanton Cave (FSC) to share results, cross-fertilize their work with other investigators, and hopefully to stimulate more interest in scientific projects into the future.

We intended to have this conference in 2020 to celebrate the 20th year of Snowy River’s discovery, but have rescheduled it for September 17, 18, and 19th, 2021 due to pandemic concerns. It will be held at New Mexico Tech and NM Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources facilities in Socorro, New Mexico.
