Search New Mexico Mineral Symposium Abstracts

The New Mexico Mineral Symposium has been an annual event since 1979 and provides a forum for both professionals and amateurs interested in mineralogy. Abstracts from past symposia are now available online and abstracts for future symposia can now be submitted via this website. Abstracts for past symposia have sometimes been very short, but a number of them are extended abstracts with figures, tables, and references. This extended abstract format is encouraged for future submissions.
