The 12th International Kimberlite Conference (12 IKC) will not be held in 2022.

Further details to be announced in early 2022.

The further postponement of 12 IKC reflects the continued worldwide uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision has been made with the goal of maintaining the unique aspect of International Kimberlite Conferences: the symbiotic in-person mix of industry and academia from across the world. The change has the full support of the International Kimberlite Conference Advisory Committee.

The intention remains to host the 12 IKC at the same venues in Yellowknife, with the same scientific programme, field trips, short courses and social events, in July-August of a subsequent year yet to be determined. The global and local situation will be assessed in Q1 of 2022 (and each subsequent year as necessary) to determine if planning for a July-August conference in the following year can proceed. Announcements will be provided as soon as possible, most likely in Q2 of 2022. (not 2023 as incorrectly stated in initial April-June 2021 On Hold Announcements).

Generous sponsorship has been a key to the success of IKCs and 12 IKC gratefully acknowledges all of our sponsors for their continuing support.

Information will be posted on the 12 IKC website (please check the Bulletin Board) as well as 12 IKC social media and updates will be sent to everyone on the 12 IKC mailing list.
