AEGC 2019 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – Open until 22 March 2019

Abstract submissions are welcome for consideration for the AEGC 2019 Conference, to be held on 2-5 September 2019 at Crown Perth. The theme for the 2019 conference is “Data to Discovery”. The AEGC technical program committee has a focus on Geology, Geophysics, and Geochemistry and how these are applied in exploration for both Petroleum and Mineral systems in Australasia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. We invite you to submit your abstract before the closing deadline at 5pm on Friday 22 March (AWST).  

Early Bird Registration will be opening next month, be sure to secure your spot at the early bird rate!

Further information regarding the conference can be found on the AEGC 2019 website.

AEGC2019 Data to Discovery

Perth will host the 2nd Australasian Exploration Geoscience Conference (AEGC) from Monday 2 to Thursday 5 September 2019 at Crown Perth.

The AEGC is the largest petroleum and mineral geoscience conference in Australasia, and incorporates the West Australian Basin Symposium (WABS) and the ASEG-PESA International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition.

The event will be jointly hosted by the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG)Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG), and Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia (PESA).

The theme for the 2019 conference is “Data to Discovery”. The AEGC technical program committee has a focus on Geology, Geophysics, and Geochemistry and how these are applied in exploration for both Petroleum and Mineral systems in Australasia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. The conference has major sub-themes encompassing but not limited to:

  • New technologies
  • New information from old data
  • Local understanding from regional context
  • Workflows and methods that reduce cost/turnaround on projects
  • Cross disciplinary co-ordination
  • Case studies
  • Interacting and communicating science to the wider community.

A vital component of the 2019 conference will be the inclusion of dedicated streams for Australian basins, discovery techniques, mineral mapping, and remote sensing applications.

On behalf of the AEGC 2019 Organising Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Perth.  Visit the conference web site for the latest information regarding the conference, accommodation, sponsorship and exhibition opportunities.

Two new events from Geoscientists Symposia

Geophysics for the Mineral Exploration Geoscientist

Date: 11-13 December 2017

Venue: Tawarri Reception Centre, Dalkeith WA

Presenter : Mike Dentith

This innovative training course uses applied learning techniques and real-world mineral exploration scenarios to train participants in the key principles of interpreting geophysical data sets, without the need for complex mathematics and physics.
This course teaches participants to integrate geological and geophysical methods to optimise mineral exploration.
With more than 25 years experience in teaching, research and consulting in mineral exploration geophysics, Prof Mike Dentith is co-author of the award winning textbook, Geophysics for the Mineral Exploration Geoscientist, on which this course is based. He has run professional courses for industry, government and professional societies in Australia, South America, Asia and Africa.

Gold2018@Perth

Date: 2 to 3 August 2018 (just before Diggers and Dealers)

Venue to be advised.

Featuring four exciting sessions, this two day meeting encompasses:

  • Conglomerate Gold
  • Regolith Gold
  • From Target to Mine
  • Gold Research

SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) in Australia

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists is bringing its 2017 Distinguished Short Course (DISC) programme to Australia.

Traveling worldwide, the SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) is an eight hour, one-day short course on a topic of current and wide-spread interest.

The 2017 DISC course covers Fundamentals and Applications of Electromagnetic Geophysics. Local case histories pertaining to problems in resource exploration, including oil and gas, minerals, water, environmental, and geotechnical areas will be used as motivation for investigating fundamentals of electromagnetics. The aim of this course is to equip participants with sufficient fundamental understanding and resources about EM geophysics so that they can decide if an EM technique can help solve their problem, select which type of survey to employ, and set realistic expectations for what information can be gleaned.

Perth: 28 July
Adelaide: August 3
Brisbane: August 8

A webinar session will also be presented.

All past DISC courses can also be listed to on-line.  Click here for more information.

AIG commends SEG on this great initiative.

 

Drilling for Geology II – Register Now

The Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) is hosting the second instalment of its very successful Drilling for Geology conference held in 2008. Drilling for Geology II, being held in Brisbane 26-28 July, 2017 will again focus on the collection and analysis of geoscientific information from drilling.

Thirty presentations will cover best practice, case studies, emerging developments and blue sky R&D in the themes of:

  • ? Industry overview
  • Drilling techniques ?
  • Drilling logistics ?
  • Sensing and geophysics ?
  • Drill hole sampling and logging methods ?
  • Making better use of drilling data

A trade exhibition will run in parallel with the technical program. All conference breaks and the welcome function will be held in the exhibition for networking.

Two days of presentations will be followed by a day of professional development workshops.
