Our next and final meeting of the year will be our “Christmas In November” talk and dinner to be held on Tuesday the 21st November at the Regal Park Motor Inn in North Adelaide.

As usual we will have drinks from 6.30 to 7pm and our speaker will talk from 7pm with dinner starting at approximately 8pm. For those wishing to stay and have dinner can you please contact Adrian Brewer prior to Monday 20th so we can let the venue know numbers. Dinner will be at an as yet unassigned venue, probably on O’Connell Street, a short walk from the meeting place. As this will also constitute our Christmas Function, the dinner afterwards will be subsidised by the SA AIG Branch.

Our speaker this month is John Anderson who is going to give us a talk on “Geosciences’ Role in SA’s Recovery” A challenge for geologists to optimise our input in moving South Australia into the next Exploration and Discovery upturn for which the tide is turning.

Some tenets:-

  • SA is a strong greenfields jurisdiction that lost momentum in the recent downturn
  • No geological terrane is mature……just our ideas on what, where and how to explore
  • Mapping is interpretive and dates
  • SA is data rich and research savvy
  • Transfer of new technology may take 10 years
  • Breakthroughs are starting to challenge the dogma
  • Collaborative and co-ordinated research is required to assess and address the questions
  • There is no such thing as…..

John Anderson is Managing Director of Investigator Resources Ltd and is happy to be branded as a passionate “old style” geologist and explorer because, like Claudius, it is a guise.

Nineteen years with Aberfoyle were a sufficient apprenticeship to try out some new and imported ideas in South Australia.
This drive was supported by many geoscientists over 22 years who knowingly or unknowingly triggered much of the thinking.

All are welcome, so come along, and have a drink and a chat with your fellow geologists.
