James Cook University
Advanced Field Training
21-28 June face to face teaching
(20 June and 29 June travel days)
This intensive 8-day course is designed to provide geoscientists with essential exploration-related field skills in complexly deformed and altered rocks. Genuine ‘form surface’ mapping of contacts, alteration zones and structures will be integrated with paragenesis, geophysical interpretation and the use of alternate knowledge-based and data-based exploration models, including an introduction to the simple and
useful application of semi-quantitative prospectivity tools.
The course will be based in the Eastern Mt Isa Block, and assessment will be by field tests, maps, and submitted exploration target criteria. The course is offered to Minerals Geoscience Masters Students and as professional development training to the minerals industry. Previous mapping training/experience is essential.
The course will include
- Veins, breccias, shear zones: paragenesis, overprinting, mechanisms, geometry
- Advanced structural geology and structural controls
- Developing exploration strategies from field observations
Please contact Judy Botting if you have any queries regarding the training courses.
