Paul Duuring is a Senior Geologist at the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum. After completing his PhD degree in Economic Geology at UWA in 2002, Paul has worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at Monash University (Melbourne), University of British Columbia (Canada), and Pukyong National University (South Korea) before returning to the Centre for Exploration Targeting, UWA in 2009. His main interest is the study of ore deposits, including their genesis and structural modification. This common theme has been applied to deposit- to district-scale studies on orogenic and intrusion-related Au systems, komatiite-hosted nickel, porphyry Cu-Au, epithermal Au-Ag, hypogene/supergene altered Fe ore, and volcanic-hosted massive sulphide deposits.

Key Research

Structural geology applied to the study of ore deposits:

  • Orogenic Au
  • Intrusion-related Au
  • Porphyry Cu-Au-Mo
  • Komatiite-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE
  • Epithermal Au-Ag
  • Banded Iron Formation-hosted Fe
  • VHMS Cu-Zn-Pb-Au-Ag
