The day is aimed at all conservators and curators who work with geological collections, but there may be interest from other museum professionals, students and volunteers.

The morning session will comprise of presentations focussing on current research, recent projects and re-storage techniques. Workshops will be held in the afternoon. Workshop participants will learn how to identify pyrite oxidation, how to undertake dry cleaning techniques, how to create anoxic microenvironments and how to use humidity-controlled environments to slow oxidation rates. The afternoon workshops are aimed at colleagues who have not had the opportunity to specialise in natural history and are less familiar with pyrite oxidation. The morning session is unlimited but the afternoon session is limited to 20 people.

Speakers are invited for the morning session. If you are undertaking a re-storage program or have recently undertaken/embarked on research then we would love to hear about it.
