    PEACOCK MEDAL

    The Peacock Medal formerly the Past-Presidents' Medal is awarded to a scientist who has made outstanding contributions to the mineral sciences in Canada. There is no restriction regarding nationality or residency. The medal is intended to recognize the breadth and universality of these contributions in mineralogy, applied mineralogy, petrology, crystallography, geochemistry or the study of mineral deposits rather than in a narrow area of expertise. A committee of three Past Presidents, chaired by the immediate Past Presidents, considers all nominations received. Nominations should be accompanied by a one-page explanation of the merits of your nominee and forwarded to Lee A. Groat (Dept of Earth and Ocean Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4, CANADA; phone: (604) 822-1289; fax: (604) 228-6088; e-mail: lgroat@eos.ubc.ca by December 31, 2014.
