  • Structural Mapping Tools and Techniques

    Keys to geological mapping:
    • Collect the data you need, not data for data’s sake
    • Map contacts
    • Work in plan and section at the same time
    • Work in 4D
    • Follow geometrical principles-geology is fractal in nature, p...

  • Exploring undercover for the next generation of Australian discoveries

    One of the most significant advances in the arena of predictive technologies is the mineral system approach to understanding ore deposit formation. By recognising processes that occur on a range of scales

  • Self Organisation and Mineralisation

    1.Introduce the concept of Self-Organised Critical Systems (SOCS)
    2.Translate the concept into an ore formation context
    3.Examples and evidence
    4.Show some exploration implications deriving from scale-invariance

  • Modern Analogues

    Common Deposit Characteristics
    1. Non-intuitive deposit distributions, including some >5 km away from jog
    2. Adjacent to regional-scale shear zones BUT hosted in subsidiary structures
    3. Deposits cluster, clusters are spaced semi-regularly along-strike

  • New Concepts for Ore Shoot Targeting: Course Introduction

    The current paradigm for understanding the formation of ore shoots in many ore deposit types is flawed.
    A new paradigm centred around how fluid flow is organised in the lithosphere leads to new concepts for exploring for ore shoots.

  • A New Perspective: Ore Shoots as as Fluid Exit Conduits

    • Proposed that most ore deposits can be considered as forming in transient fluid-exit conduits, associated with the episodic rupture of over-pressured reservoirs at depth (Hronsky, 2011).
    • Represent examples of self-organised critical systems.
    • Pro...

  • Failure of the Current Paradigm

    • Oreshoots not following kinematic model
    • Vertical stockwork pipes with no bounding shear zone/fault
    • Complex oreshoot networks
    • Multiple hydrothermal events widely spaced in time using same pathway
    • Ultrahigh grade veins

  • Exploring Under Cover for the Next Generation of Australian Discoveries

    Australia often incorrectly perceived as mature – 80% of landmass under cover, nation-wide commitment and alignment of geoscience initiatives to overcome the cover challenge – turning cover into opportunity, recent exploration shows the success of such commitment in...

  • Chemical Characteristics, Geodynamic Settings and Petrogenesis of Copper-Ore-Forming Arc Magmas

    This lecture will explore the chemical evolution of fractionally crystallising, intermittently replenished, intermittently tapped magma chambers at Moho-type pressures and shows that these processes tend to produce, after several replenishment and crystallisation cycles, except...
