Welcome to the 2021 Bowen Basin Symposium website presented by the Bowen Basin Geologists Group (BBGG)
The BBGG has a proud history of presenting the Bowen Basin Symposium (BBS) every 5 years since 1985. The theme of 2021’s event is looking “Beyond 2021: The Future of Coal”. This is the premier event run by geoscientists, for geoscientists and associated personnel, who study, explore, evaluate and mine the occurrence of coal throughout the Bowen and other basins in Queensland.
Registration is now open. Please put the dates in your diary, make plans to attend and contribute. Look out for updates on what promises to be the most adventurous and exciting Symposium yet.
The technical programme for the 2021 Bowen Basin Symposium is based around three themes over three days:
In particular, there will be a focus on mines and projects to preserve information on their basic geology and mine plan.
The Organising Committee has received a large volume of abstracts submissions for technical papers, presentations, posters and workshops. However, the Abstract Portal is now closed.
Authors were notified on Monday 03/02/2020 of their submission outcomes. Please refer to your email for more information, including instructions on paper submission.
A draft programme for the Symposium will be available on the website at the end of March 2020.
