    The Whitehorse 2016 Organizing Committee invites you to join us June 1-3, 2016 for the first-ever GAC-MAC meeting in Whitehorse, Yukon.

    The conference will highlight Northern Cordilleran geology and feature field trips to some unique geologic settings.

    We are planning a diverse program that will cover a range of geoscience disciplines including tectonics, metallogeny, geological hazards, and glaciated (and unglaciated!) northern landscapes  all against a backdrop of spectacular scenery and warm hospitality.
