A proposal for the IGCP Project No. 354 "Economic Superaccumulations of Metals in the Lithosphere" was originally prepared by Prof. Rongfu Pei (China) and Prof. Peter Laznicka (Canada). The IAGOD Commission on Tectonics of Ore Deposits (CTOD), invited to participate, prepared a program focused on the relationships between metal concentration and deep structure of the lithosphere. This program became part of the project proposal. The response from scientists of about twenty countries was very positive and the proposal, submitted through the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, was approved by the IGCP Board of UNESCO as a five-year project.
