    “Georesources Development for a Sustainable Future”


    Bayview Hotel, Georgetown, Penang

    18th – 20th September 2018

    Jointly organised by:

  • Foreword Chairman of National Geoscience Conference 2018 (NGC 2018 Penang)

    It is a great pleasure to Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and Geological Society of Malaysia (GSM) to welcome you to the 31st National Geoscience Conference, Penang, Malaysia (NGC 2018). The Conference is a premiere Geoscience event in Malaysia dedicated in promoting and sharing the development of geoscience fields and research in Malaysia and region. Annual National Geoscience Conference (NGC 2018) is an occasion and platform for academia, geoscientists, government’s bodies, research institutes, engineers, individual to share their expertise and research findings. NGC 2018 is co-organised with the support of Mineral and Geoscience Department Malaysia (JMG); with the involvement of multidisplinary geosciences bodies and institutes i.e. School of Materials and Mineral Resources Engineering (SMMRE), Geophysics program, Global Archaeology Centre of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Institute of Mineral Engineering Malaysia (IME), as the main organiser and host to NGC 2018 with the involvement of Southeast Asia Disaster Prevention Research Initiative (SEADPRI- UKM). Thus, encourage collaboration and networking in promoting and networking of academicians and professionals in sharing of common knowledge, facilitating exchanged of ideas and to keep abreast with the latest development under the Mineral, Geological and Georesources field. “Georesources Development for a Sustainable Future” is the theme of NGC2018. Knowledge of the earth’s systems and processes, together with the application of technology has improved our quality of life through the utilization and management of the earth’s natural resources such as rocks, minerals, petroleum, natural gas, groundwater and geoheritage are priority nowadays. The use of technologies and innovation in sustainable resource exploration, mining, processing, exploitation and preservation are essential elements of today’s industries and practices. The technical program of NGC2018 has accepted over 80 working papers that encompassed areas of interests in Petroleum Geology, Engineering Geology/Geomechanics, Geoheritage/Archaeology, Mining/Quarrying and Mineral Processing, Hydrogeology, Remote sensing, Mineralogy/Petrology and other aspects of geoscience discipline either as oral and poster presentation. A one- day short course on Advanced Blasting Technology and a post-conference fieldtrip to Gunung Jerai Geoparks, Fort Conwallis, Guar Kepah, Sg. Batu (Geoheritage) are amongst the attraction of NGC 2018. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Geological Society of Malaysia (GSM) secretariat, Department of Mineral and Geoscience (JMG), Institute of Mineral Engineering Malaysia (IME), sponsors, donors and individuals for their trust and support given for organising and making this event successful. This year an online editorial system platform technology has been adopted in manuscripts and payment process, and last but not least, we thank the USM Committee, GSM secretariat and individual for their support and effort that make NGC 2018 a successful event that manifested the smart corporation, collaboration and networking. I am very confident, NGC 2018 will provide a platform and avenue that promote networking and benefit the community i.e. scientist, academicians, management, consultants, government agencies and interested individuals to keep abreast with the latest development in Geological and Geo-resources field and industries. Last but not least, I would also like to extend my gratitude to the members of the organising committee, editorial sub-committee, reviewers, sponsors and individuals for their dedication, hard work, commitment and support, in planning and ensuring the success of this NGC 2018. Thank you and all the best, ASSOC. PROF. DR KAMAR SHAH ARIFFIN Chairman, Joint Organising Committee NGC2018 18-20 September 2018
