ONE-DAY COURSE FOR
A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF EXPLORATION GEOCHEMISTRY
Presented by DR CARL BRAUHART,
PHD MAIG MSEG

8.00AM – 4.00PM
EXPAND YOUR EXPLORATION CAPABILITY
Multi-element geochemistry is one of the most powerful tools available to an exploration geologist; it is also a tool that many skilled and seasoned practitioners struggle with day to day.
Designing effective geochemical sampling programs, managing large multi-element databases, and correctly interpreting the data are critical disciplines for an exploration geologist to master.
To explore effectively, we must integrate a diverse range of data; but geochemistry is the one dataset that directly identifies (and quantifies) mineralisation. Therefore, it warrants special attention!
Critical issues facing clients when managing and interpreting their geochemical data will be addressed in this course. Although it is not intended as a comprehensive ioGAS training course, participants will gain a working knowledge of this software learning how to use many of its functions.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This one-day course is designed for moderately to highly experienced exploration geologists who wish to extend their skills in geochemistry.
Knowledge of ioGAS is not required. Our facilitator will work systematically through each exercise, allowing time for note taking by participants.
- Our Premises (In-house West Perth) or Your Premises (Onsite).
- This course is presented as a one-day (8 hour) program.
The benefits of studying in a classroom setting include being able to share first-hand experiences, ideas and questions with peers and your expert facilitator. You’ll study alongside like-minded people from industry and help to strengthen your network.
Upon completion of this course, you will have a solid grounding in ten
important skills in Exploration Geochemistry.
You will be able to:
- Validate data, and recognise the limitations of that data.
- Use X-Y plots to explore data, validate results of more advanced
investigations and link to spatially defined anomalies.
- Identify element associations in your data using Principal
- Recognise that element associations are scale dependent.
- Break false correlations in your data using Centred Log Ratios.
- Understand the advantages of using probability plots over
- Construct a log additive index that highlights an anomalous metal
- Use alteration geochemistry to better understand the mineralogy of a
hydrothermal alteration system.
- Discriminate different rock types using immobile element ratios.
- Apply immobile-incompatible element ratios to define separate
magma series (or sediment packages).
WHAT DO I REQUIRE?
Your laptop with Windows 7 or higher, including internet connection.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Carl is an exploration geologist with over 25 years experience in gold and base-metal exploration, spending much of that time working in frontier areas of Western Australia on grassroots projects. He has a particular interest in exploration and ore deposit geochemistry, and a passion for field work, particularly mapping. Carl has maintained a close association with the Centre for Exploration Targeting at the University of Western Australia where he is the lead researcher on the OSNACA Project (an ore deposit geochemistry research effort). During his time at CSA Global, Carl has undertaken fieldwork across Australia, Sudan and Uganda and has carried out major geochemical investigations for many mining clients on gold, base-metal and industrial mineral projects globally.
