Current research

Professor Leon Bagas is a Professor at the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS), Adjunct with CET, and a member of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Core to Crust Fluid Systems.

China
Leon is actively involved in collaborative research with CAGS and China University of Geosciences Beijing (CUGB). He was officially appointed as an Adjunct Professor at CAGS in mid-2015, and as a Professor in mid-2017. He is in close collaboration with Professor Sihong Jiang (CAGS), Prof Jun Deng (President of China University of Geosciences Beijing, CUGB) and Prof Changming Wang (CUGB). CAGS was established in 1956 and is part of the People’s Republic Ministry of Land and Resources, and is engaged in geoscience research. The research focuses on projects throughout China, and includes the supervision of PhD Candidates and Masters students attached to those projects. CUGB traces its roots to Beijing College of Geology, founded in 1952 following the merger of geological departments at Peking University, Tsinghua University, Tianjin University, and Tangshan Railway College.

The areas of interest in China are the geology and mineralisation in the North China Craton, Central Asian Orogen, Qinling Orogen, and South China Craton.

As part of his studies throughout China, Leon teaches various topics including:
•    Different mineral deposits in terranes
•    Structural controls on mineralisation
•    Interpretation of Geophysical data as an aid to understanding large-scale tectonics

Greenland
Leon is collaborating with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) in researching the regional structural geology of southeastern Greenland. The aim of the project is to gather data and gain a better understanding of the geology and economic potential of the region. This is particularly important because the region is poorly explored for mineral resources. As observed in the field by Leon, southeastern Greenland includes orthogneiss, mafic granulite, narrow bands and lenses of possible paragneiss, and ultramafic gneiss. The region is structurally complex with evidence of at least seven deformation events including newly recognized Neoarchean deformation, associated with regional metamorphism up to granulite facies, partial melting and syn- to late-orogenic magmatism. Interestingly, later deformation events at greenschist facies are occasionally associated with anomalous semi-massive sulfides, gold, and nickel.

Commodities of interest include:
•    Au, Mo-Cu-Au
•    Uranium
•    Orthomagmatic Ni-Cu sulfides
•    Sediment-hosted base-metal and Carlin-type Au deposits
•    Volcanogenic Mo-Cu-Zn(-Au)
•    BIF-hosted Fe

Memberships:
•    Fellow, Society of Economic Geologists
•    Member, Society of Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits
•    Member Geological Society of Australia
