Punta del Cobre District Field Workshop
Punta del Cobre District Field Workshop with Rodrigo Diaz. After a comprehensive morning classroom briefing in Copiapo, most of the remainder of the day was spent inspecting and traversing the geology, regional and local alteration patterns and copper and iron oxide occurrences of the district which also hosts the world class La Candelaria deposit.   Right: David Cass of Anglo American, North America (left) and Rodrigo Diaz (right).

In the late afternoon, the group was driven to Copiapo airport for a commercial airline flight to La Serena. The charter bus that had been utilised since Antofagasta at the start of the module, then returned to its origin and a new bus met the group on arrival in La Serena that night to transport them to their overnight accommodation.
