Annual and Spring Meeting

On the 11th to 12th of May we held the annual meeting and the Swedish Geological Spring Meeting in Stockholm. The new board for 2024 was elected at the annual meeting and afterwards followed a day packed with interesting talks on the theme Arsenic and sulphide bearing rock in the Mälardalen area. This part of the day was concluded with an intense panel debate and followed by an informal dinner. About 60 people attended the Spring meeting. The next an excursion was held in the Arlanda area and led by Jenny Andersson, Mattias Göransson, Per Nysten (SGU) and Iwona Klonowska (Uppsala Universitet). So great to see so many members and collegues!
