Field Trip Description

In May 2000, the North American Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals is being combined with the UK Extractive Indistry Geology Conference to make a special meeting to mark the Millenium. It will be the first, and perhaps only, time that the Forum will have its annual meeting outside North America.

Most of those attending will be geologists working in the quarrying, clay extraction, opencast coal and industrial minerals industries. An ambitious programme is being organised. Field trips to Bath and its surroundings and further afield will be an important part of the conference.

The Bath Geological Society has been asked to participate in this programme, in particular to organise field visits in the Bath area in the afternoon of Tuesday 9th May.

Important Notice: Bath Geological Society Insurance

Each person attending a field meeting does so on the understanding that he/she attends at his/her own risk. The Bath Geological Society has Public Liability Insurance Cover for field and indoor meetings, but Personal Accident Cover and Personal Liability Cover remain the responsibility and personal choice of the participant.

There may be an element of appropriate cover included in house insurance or in travel insurance: although Bath Geological Society activities are not particularly dangerous members are advised to check whether exclusions apply to activities in which they plan to participate in case they wish to arrange further cover. An annual travel insurance may be the best solution for any member who regularly attends field events: this again is a matter of choice.

Please note however that all members participating in overseas events will be required to have travel insurance for the duration of the event: this is so that participants are covered for Medical, Repatriation and Personal Liability expenses. The Personal Accident element remains the personal choice of the member and again members are advised to check exclusions so that they can make an informed decision about the cover they want.
