Short courses on geothermal resources (1-5 days) and epithermal mineralization (1-2 days) are offered for delivery anywhere in the world.

Geothermal lectures can be tailored for specialist and non-specialist audiences, including groups with no scientific background. They are designed to improve understanding of resources so that they can be managed effectively to serve a diversity of stakehold interests.

Epithermal lectures describe the hydrothermal processes that produce gold-silver deposits and the surrounding hydrothermal alteration.

The 7 day field trip to NZ geothermal areas and epithermal deposits is run  every 2-3 years (last run 1-7 October, 2015). It provides an overview of the volcanic-tectonic setting, hydrology, fluid chemistry, alteration, and mineralization in hydrothermal systems of the North Island of New Zealand. The itinerary includes visits to the Champagne Pool at Waiotapu, White Island volcano, and gold-silver deposits in the Coromandel peninsula. Next likely trip is Gold 2017 (Feb 2017) in Rotorua.

Field trips through NZ geothermal areas and epithermal deposits can be arranged for companies on request.
