Clay Minerals Society Membership Survey
The Society is grateful to those members could have already completed this survey. We're keen to discover your views about Society services, so, if you haven't already taken the survey, please do so now.
There will be a prize draw from the names of all respondents and the winner will receive a free copy of a book of their choice from the CMS Workshop Lecture Series.
Warren Huff interview


Colleagues at the Clay Minerals Group of the Mineralogical Society of the UK and Ireland are celebrating their 75th (!) anniversary this year. There is a nice programme of events and publications to celebrate.
This includes an interview with CMS stalwart, Warren Huff.
