We have decided to offer the short course, Geology of Gem Deposits, a second time and publish a new edition of the handbook for several reasons:

  • gem deposit research has become more mainstream, and many fascinating papers have been published since 2007
  • numerous individuals told us that they could not attend the short course in Yellowknife, but would be interested in attending a course given elsewhere
  • the first edition of the handbook has sold out, having been through two printings totalling 1,213 copies
