Our final Friday Seminar for 2018 will focus on the topic of Geophysics for Geoscientists. A day of excellent presentations and case studies will provide valuable insights into current and state-of-the-art geophysical applications to support mineral and coal exploration, including case studies. The seminar is ideal for geologists who want to get a better understanding of a variety of geophysical methods and their uses.

Topics will include:

  • Electromagnetics
  • Induced Polarisation/Resistivity
  • Magnetotellurics
  • Gravity
  • Seismic
  • Modeling and drill targeting of geophysical data
