Geoscience Online Learning Initiative webinar on critical and strategic minerals

January 25, 2012

Alexandria, VA - The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) in coordination with the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) presents the second webinar as a part of the Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI). The webinar, entitled Critical and Strategic Minerals: Concepts and Status will air on February 1, 2012 at 2:00 pm EST.

This webinar, presented by Jim Burnell, the Senior Minerals Geologist with the Colorado Geological Survey, will review the history of what defines critical and strategic minerals, and evaluate some of the key commodities listed as critical today.

The Geoscience Online Learning Initiative seeks to build a portfolio of online learning opportunities to help support the professional development of prospective early-career geoscientists, as well as address topics of interest to the broader geoscience profession. GOLI courses support both synchronous and asynchronous online learning, and count toward continuing education units (CEU's).

The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the profession. AIPG represents the professional interests of all practicing geoscientists in every discipline. Its advocacy efforts are focused on the promotion of the role of geology and geologists in society.

The American Geosciences Institute is a nonprofit federation of 50 geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 250,000 geologists, geophysicists, and other earth scientists. Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment.
