Plans for Stage 2 of the South American eXploration Initiative.
This 3-year project is an integrated data gathering and analysis program that has been inspired by the highly successful West African Exploration Initiative (WAXI, AMIRA project series P934) and builds on the successful one-year pilot project that culminated in the Inter Guiana Geological Conference in February this year.
This project will concentrate on the Guiana Shield over five countries: Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, Guiana and Brazil.
Stage 1 was sponsored by nine global exploration and mining companies and three geological survey organisations.
Stage 2 is expected to expand on this, with interest from additional companies and other GSOs.
On Thursday 16th May, a breakfast event with industry was held at the Mercure, Perth, where SAXI lead researcher Mark Jessell (CET-UWA) expanded on plans for Stage 2 and spoke about the potential for involvement and the benefits from joining the growing consortium. [photos below]
