This project is building 4-D geological models to aid exploration targeting at both mine and regional scales in the Paleoproterozoic terranes of the Leo-Mann shield in West Africa.
This is one of the largest nickel project initiatives ever undertaken in Australia. The project looks into the lithospheric framework in which komatiites were emplaced after forming at depth in the mantle. Therefore, the study investigates how to predict the localisation of mineralised komatiite clusters or camps in different terranes.
The principal aims of this project are to re-assess and understand the geology and geophysics of the Plutonic Well Greenstone Belt of Western Australia in order to provide better reconstructions of basement geometries with the stratigraphic and structural relationships. This aims to improve targeting.
This project aims to constrain the multi-scale 4D evolution of the Ntaka Hill mafic-ultramafic complex using a variety of geochemical, isotopic and geochronological methods. This data will be integrated to understand the setting and context of the complex within Africa and Gondwana, as well as the architecture of the intrusion itself and controls on high tenor Ni-Cu mineralisation.
This study aims to integrate structural geology, gold deposits, potential field data sets and hydrothermal footprints in the Tennant Creek Mineral Field in the Northern Territory.
This project is studying a fundamental transition period in planet Earth 2.7-1.8 billion years ago (Ga), that is also remarkably endowed in metal deposits.

This project aims to understand the four dimensional evolution of the lithospheric architecture of the Birimian Terrane of West Africa. The specific goal is to unravel the spatial and genetic link between lithospheric architecture and distribution of magmatic mineral systems.
This MSc project will attempt to date hydrothermal alteration minerals associated with the upgrade of BIF (about 30% Fe) to high-grade iron ore (>55% Fe) in BIF-hosted iron ore deposits in the Yilgarn Craton of Western Australia.
This project aims to develop the first comprehensive picture of the earliest growth history of the Australian continent as preserved in the Yilgarn and Pilbara cratons- in particular to locate, characterize, and define the areal distribution of Hadean crust.
